Random Cookbook Giveaway of the Week

Posted by Holly Whitfield | November 30th 2010 1726 0

I’ve got a signed copy of Pat and Gina Neely’s cookbook, “Down Home With the Neelys” to give to one of you. Yay!

Down Home With the Neelys

The book is being given away by Kraft Foods as part of their Huddle to Fight Hunger program. Kraft has brought Pat and Gina Neely, Joe Montanta and sports journalist Erin Andrews together to donate 20 million meals (or more) to Feeding America.

If you’d like to join the huddle to fight hunger, there are a few ways:

– For every person that signs up to join the huddle on their website, a meal will be donated.

– A meal will be donated every time someone tweets with the hashtag #KraftFightsHunger

– Text the word β€œMEALS” and your zip code to 71717 and Kraft Foods will make a one-meal donation to your local food bank for each text.

If you’d like to be entered in the drawing to win the cookbook, leave a comment on this post, reply to me on Twitter or leave a comment on Facebook by noon today.

I write about what’s going on with Memphis music, food, arts, events, sports, people, and culture. Memphians love Elvis and barbeque with a passion that must be seen to be believed, but there is so much more to this place.
