Austin Food Bloggers Unite to Share their Hunger Story
April 22, 2010 § 4 Comments
Everybody has a hunger story. Yesterday kicked off a week-long project to share hunger stories from the perspective of Austin’s food blogging community. The bloggers will cook with food they would receive if they were a client at a food pantry in an effort to raise awareness of the hunger crisis in Central Texas.
We sent the group a list of food items we distributed at the Reaching Out Center in Pflugerville. The bloggers then purchased those items and will write about their culinary journey. They may also choose to supplement their grocery list with food items they would be able to purchase if they qualified for SNAP (food stamps), or were enrolled in the Women, Infants and Children program (WIC).
You can participate, too! Let us know if you’d like to blog, or you can comment on others’ blogs. We’ll list all the blog posts on our Austin Food Bloggers page.
Participating Austin Food Bloggers include:
Addie Broyles – Relish Austin
Suzanna Cole – South Austin Foodie Blog
Summer Huggins – Something to Chew On
Lauren Kincke – Bytes from Texas: One Longhorn’s Adventures
