A quote from renowned chef Mario Batali to his peers:
"We all make our living from creating food and it is a tragedy that there are so
many who cannot afford to eat."
We wish you, your families,
and friends an abundance
of joy during this festive
season. If, during the Holidays,
you are shopping for food
and gifts, or dining out, please remember your neighbors in
need by supporting the retailers, restaurants and organizations that
give back a portion of what
you spend to Help the Hungry.
With very little effort, you will
be gratified to know that your contribution has made a big
difference to another family
who would not otherwise
have been fed.
