Toasted*

"...ooohhh, I simply love
the smell of freshly baked bread! "
"








.
....Hope everyone had a lovely weekend... Well, I'm really toasted! Found a new Creative + Fun thing to do...and also fight hunger at the same time...The Grain Foods Foundation and Food Network host Ted Allen have teamed up with Feeding America to help fight hunger ~one slice of bread at a time! We can take part in the Bread Art Project at gowiththegrain.org, where they can create a personalized piece of bread art by uploading a favorite drawing or photo, or create a new one using a slice of bread as the canvas.

-For each piece of bread art created, the Grain Foods Foundation will donate $1 to Feeding America, up to $50,000. One dollar provides seven meals or four bags of groceries to the 25 million people served by food banks annually. The more bread art consumers create, the more meals Feeding America can put on the table for families across the country. We can also view bread art from around the country and check out some of Allen’s own designs as they take a virtual tour of the online gallery of giving.

In the Bread Art workshops you can also create bread art animations. Or stroll the bread art galleries. And don’t forget to visit the bread art library to learn more about nutrition and hunger in America. ~So help make some toast Darlingsss... "Have a Delicious* Week !!!" ~XOXO*
