Food news: Try Drop in and Decorate

Drop in and Decorate

Host your own
Drop in and Decorate party
for charity!

My blogging buddy Lydia at The Perfect Pantry has a great event for the holiday season that I think you should get involved with. Let me tell you a little bit about Drop in and Decorate, a grassroots effort to stock homeless shelters with tasty morsels. It's pretty simple: bake some cookies, invite some people over to decorate them and donate the cookies to a local food pantry, senior center or lunch program.

You can find out more about how to host this over here. Now I don't have an oven and can't really participate, but I hope that you give it a try. It's a nice way to socialize with some friends and still promote a cause. This event has a corporate sponsor, which is offering a baking kit. You can click on the logo to check out the kit.

On another note, two of my classmates and I have partnered with the Associated Press to write about youth and politics. It's really the pinacle of my career thus far. The story was picked up by Forbes, the Miami Herald, ABC News, CBS and Fox! Please go and check out the video on YouTube -- I'm not showing it here because I really hope you'll go and check it out, send it to your friends and most of all, respond!
