April Food Day - 2011

Three years ago, Chris Cox, the editor of Easy & Elegant Life, and a former copy-writer, and I, a fund-raiser, put our virtual heads together and came up with a day and a way to raise money to help fight hunger. At that time, the financial crisis was just a few months old, and none of us knew how long it would last or how its effects would reverberate around the country… and the world.

On Friday, April 1, we will be hosting April Food Day – Bloggers Fighting Hunger.  We are working with Feeding America, as well as several food banks around the country to raise much needed funds to fight hunger. grey headerChris and I hope that you will join us in this effort by posting about hunger and food aid on your blog on April 1, 2011, and adding a link to either Feeding America, or your local food bank so that your readers may make a donation.

I will have additional information next week, including April Food Day logos for your blogs and a specific link to the donations page at Feeding America.

Thank you for helping us help others.


  1. Me too. Can't wait for the logo.

  2. Just catching up on several day's worth of your posts. I have always admired this effort, and was glad to participate last year. This year, Maine has a new governor, a mean buffoon who is further cutting the safety net for those at the bottom. It's all too depressing.

  3. I'm joining this year, too. Don't have a food blog, but do sit on the board of a food bank and love this idea. People forget that, because of illness, economy, or crisis, many don't have access to food. Thanks to all for their efforts to raise awareness and feed others.
