In a couple of days this blog will reach its’ one year anniversary.
When we started this thing back in September of 2008, we had no idea what would become of our little project. We had no idea that trying to eat on a dollar a day would end up landing us in the New York Times, or on the t.v. show Inside Edition. We had no idea that people from all over the world would be writing us about a cacophony of concerns related to food issues. And we had no idea that we would be able to use this medium to give back to our local community hunger program.
Since last September a lot has happened, people continue to write us, journalists continue to write about us, and most of all, we continue to write about the many issues related to food in our lives. So today, as we’re working on the edits for the book, we just want to say thank you to all of our readers, to everyone who has written us, and to all those who have continued to support our efforts and challenge our thinking.
In two days the school year will officially begin, and on that day we will continue to think about all of those who are struggling to make ends meet, and will continue to move forward in doing what we can to help.
So, thank you once again, and please, keep reading…and by all means go ahead and pre-order the book. Order one for you, and one for a friend, we know you’ll love it.
