Blogger Aid Cookbook

I just wanted to give you a sneaky-peek at the soup I am submitting for the Blogger Aid Cook Book. I cannot divulge the recipe at this stage, but I can tell you a little bit about the programme they are backing.

Blogger Aid have chosen a charity called School Meals.

School Meals is a project lead by the World Food Programme (WFP). The World Food Programme is the United Nations front-line agency in the fight against global hunger. It is the world's largest humanitarian organization.

Through this program, a meal is provided to children in schools where there are low attendance rates with a particular focus on schools that have a significant lack of children attending, especially girls. The goal in poorer communities worldwide is to provide a hot, nutritious meal as an incentive for parents to send their children to school rather than keeping them at home working.

Facts and Figures

• 75 million primary school-aged children do not go to school
• 97 percent of them are in developing countries
• 57 percent of them are girls
• 150 million children drop out of school before attaining basic primary education

100% of the proceeds from the sales of the cookbook will be channeled to the School Meals.

There is still time left, if you would like to contribute a recipe. The deadline is the 31 March 2009. The details can be found over at Val's blog - More Than Burnt Toast, or on the Blogger Aid website. You don't need to be a member to participate.

I would like to thank Val for inviting me to submit a recipe and wish her lots of luck with this worth while project.

I love reading comments, so thank you for taking the time to leave one. Unfortunately, I'm bombarded with spam, so I've turned on comment moderation. I'll publish your comments as soon as I can and respond to them. Don't panic, they will disappear when you hit publish. Jac x
