Recipes for Hunger Relief

Here's the text of an email I just got. I checked out Family-to-Family and it looks pretty legit.

Homes across the nation are starting to uncover the grill, light the citronella candles and make bi-weekly trips to the farmers market - all in preparation for the season's most anticipated moments: the magic that occurs when family and friends gather around the dinner table to share conversation, laughter and joy. Unfortunately, not everyone has the opportunity to experience the type of conviviality born at the table - let alone the food that covers it - and Campo Viejo wants this to change.

Campo Viejo, the fastest-growing winery in the Rioja region of Northern Spain, is summoning food enthusiasts across the U.S. with Campo Viejo Convivium, a culinary mission that will use the passion found in favorite dishes to bring meals to the tables of those who need it most.

Starting now and continuing through June 26, 2011, the winery is challenging kitchen connoisseurs to submit their favorite crowd-pleasing recipes by emailing them to For every recipe received, Campo Viejo will donate $100 to Family-to-Family, a nonprofit hunger relief organization that encourages families with more to help other families in need. Limit to three (3) recipe submissions per person.

In addition to pairing well with Campo Viejo’s wines, the recipes should represent dishes that are enjoyed together by family and friends and that unite people when sharing a meal.

So during your next run for sugar snap peas, mint and okra, don't forget to pick up this season's most sought after ingredient: hope.
