Inspired by the call to action heard at the First Canadian Food Bloggers of Canada conference Valerie from a Canadian Foodie put out the call for all Canadian food bloggers to share their experiences with Canadian food. Over the next 12 months, on the 7th of every month I will write about a variety of pre-determined topics, share my culinary and cultural perspectives and post my recipes. On the 15th of the month, Valerie will post a recap of all posts for readers to share.

Last week I participated in an extreme poverty initiative called Live Below the Line. It ran from April 29th to May 3rd, and the challenge was to live on $1.75 per day of food or $8.75 groceries for the week. My team was called Bloggers below the Line and together we raised $1,568, and I personally raised $320. Thanks to everyone who sponsored me I really appreciate it.
