Last day for Menu For Hope, and Happy Holidays

Cross stitch Christmas Advent wallhanging

This is the very last day you can donate to Menu For Hope! And a nice bonus - take a look at the beautiful poem about Lesotho here by Rethabile.

Just Bento is taking a few days off to take care of a ton of offline duties. We’ll be back on the 26th, Boxing Day - an appropriate day to start talking about getting into the bento making spirit for 2008.

Important edit to the Menu For Hope prize listing

Any bento box featured up until the December 21st deadline as Bento Of The Week can be selected as your prize, even if the retail price goes over the limit.

Just Bento is happy to announce that we’re donating a prize for Menu For Hope, now in its 4th year. Menu for Hope is an annual charity event contributed to by food bloggers around the world. It was instigated by Pim of Chez Pim, and this year’s regional European host is Fanny of foodbeam.

We’re calling our prize: The Bento Maker’s Dream Package! continue reading...
