It's been three weeks of amazing developments in the Blog for Food campaign, and there's one week left to go. We've had Oregon bloggers signing up in droves, with 48 currently participating. One post from Food Dude at Portland Food & Drink recalls his own experience of need earlier in his life.
In addition, several bloggers have volunteered their businesses for food drop-offs:
- Saraveza, 1004 N Killingsworth
- Vino, 1226 SE Lexington in Sellwood
- Gilt Club, 306 NW Broadway downtown
We have a total! As of last Friday (2/21), $1210 has been donated to the OFB directly as a result of our efforts. Every $12 is enough for the OFB to collect and distribute an Emergency Food Box, which feeds a family of four for 3-5 days. $1210 represents over 100 food boxes. Thank you everyone!
