The Bread Art Project is Feeding America
Aren't these pieces of toasty art so cool? They're way better than that lameness I've got up top! Well the Grain Food Foundation joined forces with Feeding America to create The Bread Art Project. You can create your own virtual masterpiece by uploading a photo or drawing or creating one from scratch. For every piece created, the Grain Food Foundation will donate $1 (up to $50,000) to Feeding America to help in the fight against hunger and every dollar is equal to seven meals or 10 lbs of food. So far they've raised $25,000 and provided 175,000 meals to families in need! (via Lenorenevermore)
