Thinking of giving the gift of charity this year? Menu for Hope is having an online raffle with different culinary prizes. The big prizes this year are tours at the elBulli laboratory with Ferran AndriA, dining Brit-style on a meal prepared by Heston Blumenthal or having a lunch date with Harold McGee. Chez Pim is organizing this extraordinary event. The best part is that funds support the UN World Food Programme. WFP is the largest food aid agency, working with over 1,000 other organizations in over 75 countries. In addition to providing food, the World Food Programme helps the hungry become self-sufficient so that they can permanently escape hunger. The programs focus on buying food locally to support local farmers and the local economy.
