You + Barilla = Hunger Relief

I saw an ad in February's "Parenting" Magazine about The Celebrity Pasta Lovers' Cookbook, and I decided to check it out tonight. I also saw it highlighted on one of the morning talkshows, I think it was The View, so maybe some of you have already heard of it. The basic gist is that if you go to the Celebrity Pasta Lovers' Cookbook site and download a free copy of this cookbook, Barilla will donate $1 to America's Second Harvest, the hunger relief organization. I checked out the recipes, and they look really tasty! There's no drawbacks here...FREE yummy pasta recipes and help to those who need it!

Here's some extra info from the site:

Hunger affects more than 38 million people in America today - and 14 million are children. It's a challenge that requires constant attention and support, and food producers and chefs are in a unique position to help raise awareness and money through projects like The Celebrity Pasta Lovers' Cookbook.

Every time you or a friend downloads a copy, Barilla will donate $1, with a total donation up to $100,000, to America's Second Harvest - The Nation's Food Bank Network, a national charity that secures and distributes more than 2 billion pounds of donated food and grocery products annually. America’s Second Harvest is the largest charitable domestic hunger-relief organization in the country with more than two billion pounds of donated food and grocery products distributed across the country annually. Just last year, we provided food assistance to more than 25 million people in the United States. We appreciate your help in alleviating hunger in America, and we hope you enjoy the cookbook!
