Thanks to a reader of the site this week for tipping me off about Walmart’s fighting hunger competition. The competition is set to award $1.5 million to communities across the USA, with the aim of fighting hunger. The top five communities stand to win prizes ranging from a million dollars to $100,000.
Winners are decided based on the number of facebook “likes” each community receives during the contest. To take part and help SLC, all you need to do is head to this link and select the like button:
Many local charities stand to benefit from the cash, including the Utah Food Bank. Right now, Salt Lake City is third in the running, standing a very real chance of taking the top prize; which I would imagine would make a massive impact locally. A few seconds of your time and a click of the mouse could make all the difference.
Hi, I’m Stuart, nice to meet you! I’m the founder, writer and wrangler at Gastronomic SLC and The Utah Review; I’m also a former restaurant critic of more than five years, working for the Salt Lake Tribune. I’ve worked extensively with other local publications from Utah Stories through to Salt Lake Magazine and Visit Salt Lake.
I’m a multiple-award winning journalist and have covered the Utah dining scene for more than a decade. I’m largely fueled by Uinta Cutthroat, alliteration and the use of too many big words I don’t understand. I ate all the pies.
