Bay Area Food & Wine Bloggers Volunteer Day

Kudos to my two favourite, big-hearted Bay Area bloggers Amy and Sam for organising a Food & Wine Bloggers Volunteer Day at the San Francisco Food Bank.

I'd never been to the Food Bank, where about 35 food and wine bloggers packaged corn, apples, and oranges. The SF Food Bank "collect donated food from growers, manufacturers and grocers, then distribute it to people in need through food pantries, soup kitchens, child care centers, homeless shelters, senior centers and other human service agencies with meal programs. All in all, we will distribute 25 million pounds of food this year to hungry people in San Francisco."

As you can see from these pictures, everyone enjoyed the experience. And you get a free party hat!

And you discover new blogs and the warm and friendly people that create them. Here's four new ones I discovered:

  • Pengrin Eats

  • All-In

  • Vinography

  • The Cork Dork

  • And, of course, helping to feed hungry people is what we're all about.

    Thats impressive! I've never heard of food banks before, and I'm sure its an idea that any city could take on board!

    It was great fun packing frozen corn with you, Catherine. :) I'm happy to have discovered your blog as well.

    It's too bad I didn't read the Evite list more carefully to see that you were on the list so we could have met in person. Perhaps at the next event. I'll bring a bunch of lamb's quarters...

    Marc - sorry to have missed meeting you. I arrived late and didn't go to Yield so I missed most of the social scene. Next time!
