More Help for Typhoon Yolanda Victims -- The Food Community Takes Action

title
A group of generous food and beverage purveyors have banded together to offer help to the victims of typhoon Yolanda.  They are pledging a portion of their proceeds this weekend, November 16 - 17, to the Philippine Red Cross.  Over a 100 kind souls have committed themselves to this initiative, started and spearheaded by Mr. Delicious.  I think it is a wonderful endeavour and will be showing them my support.

So if you are going to eat out this weekend, may I suggest these establishments?

If you'd like to share, please use the hashtags #YolandaActionWeekend and #ReliefPH so we can stay connected.  Several of these vendors are ones that I usually frequent or whose products I regularly buy, so I'm more than happy that my purchases will be going further this weekend.

If you'd like to donate directly to the Red Cross, you can do so HERE.

I've also rounded up other ways to help HERE.

The devastation seems insurmountable, and I know many here feel helpless.  But every little bit counts.  I, for one, will focus on staying positive and helping out in any way I can.  As much as the images and stories I see and hear on the news brings tears to my eyes, the overwhelming support and desire to help out, from every corner of this country and beyond, warms my heart.  And this weekend it will warm my belly as well.  So, as we Filipinos love to say...Kain na! (Let's eat!)
