Thank-you everyone who made this year’s A Week in Their Kitchen a great success! Eating solely from the hamper would be a difficult task for anyone, and our bloggers did a fantastic job sticking to the Food Bank diet.
Looking back at everyone’s experience, It is apparent that the A Week in Their Kitchen campaign has really affected the bloggers on a very personal level. Although this “experiment” was not meant to make the bloggers feel guilty about their every day lives, but it did bring about a lot of feelings that they wouldn’t have experienced otherwise. Through these experiences they can better understand what a client may feel, and in turn, see first hand why it is so important to donate to the Food Bank.
Through this event, the Food Bank hoped to demonstrate what many of our clients face as a reality and that anyone could be in need of the Food Bank at any time. We hope that our bloggers and readers take this experience and share it with others in hopes of spreading hunger awareness throughout Calgary.
The end result of this experience was that the Food Bank doesn’t just distribute food; they hand-out hope and strength to those in need and that every little bit donated does count.
Thank-you again for a great A Week in Their Kitchen 2011!
