Gentle Readers, we’re going to change things up a bit today and address a problem that affects us all, hunger. The Practical Cook was raised in a farming family whose goal was to feed anyone who came through the door, and that still stands true. There’s an easy way to help on Thursday, October 20, 2011: bring 4 cans of Food Lion brand food to exchange for 1 free admission ticket to the N.C. State Fair.
If you’re a food fan like me, it’s one more way to enjoy the N.C. State Fair: stop and reflect on the hard work put into food production and bringing the good stuff to the table. For those reading this blog outside of N.C., I encourage you to find ways to give in your community. If you’re not going to the fair but still want to contribute, visit Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina for more ways to give back.
Roll the tape:
So give a little, get a whole lot. Once you’re inside the fair, this is waiting on you:
So thanks for listening to this Deep-Fried-with-a-Purpose Message. Hunger is a problem we can do something about.
