Each year, the Menu for Hope charity raffle brings together food bloggers worldwide in the fight against hunger. Bloggers offer prizes that readers may buy virtual raffle tickets to win, with the proceeds going to the U.N. World Food Program.
Slice is offering the following prize, which you may buy a ticket for at this link: firstgiving.com/menuforhope4. (Tickets cost $10 each, and you may buy as many tickets as you'd like for any one prize or for multiple prizes; instructions on entering here.)
For Menu for Hope this year, Slice is offering a New York City Guided Pizza Tour for 4. We'll take the winner and 3 of his or her guests on a day-long pizza tour of the Big Apple consisting of up to 6 pizzerias. We'll work together with the winner to customize the tour, within reason.
Not sure you'd dig this prize? Here's what last year's winners said: "... there was something almost operatic about it. A 5-act, seven-and-a-half-hour opera, with some true highs and lows, some tears, some triumphs, a couple of Italian heroes, and a few important lessons. We thanked our hosts profusely and headed back to Brooklyn to try to make sense of it all. Days later, back in Montreal, we were still reeling."
The prize code for this tour is UE19. To learn how to enter, click through the jump.
