Last Push for 'Menu for Hope VI'

This year's Menu for Hope, the annual charity fund-raiser raffle that brings food bloggers together to help others, is just $2,405 away from reaching $70,000. as of publication time of this post. It would be great to see this year's event, held over until the 31st, reach a nice even number (or more). Last year's MfH raised more than $62,000 for the UN World Food Programme, down from the 2007 record of $90,000. Let's see if Serious Eats readers can help in the final push to $70k.

Menu for Hope VI: Call for Participation

Each year in December food blogger Pim Techamuanvivit (Chez Pim) organizes the Menu for Hope to raise funds for a food charity. Techamuanvivit has just put out a call for participation for this year's Menu for Hope VI, taking place December 14–25.

Prizes can get pretty crazy and special—food tours, food-related classes, small appliances, dinners cooked by hotshot chefs, etc. (here's last year's master list).
