It’s day two of the Blogtown Flash Food Drive and we’ve got even more goodies to give you in exchange for you dropping off your non-perishable food items at the Merc offices [605 NE 21st, ste. 200]!

First! Remember that a donation enters you in a drawing to win these two heavy cookbooks:


That’s the brand new Bob’s Red Mill Cookbook and The Silver Spoon: Pasta cookbook.

Second! Thanks to our friends at Tanuki [413 NW 21st], any donation we receive at the office today and tomorrow will get you a receipt good for a free sake shot at the awesome Northwest Portland izakaya. Conversely, if you can’t make it to the Merc offices between 9:30 AM and 4:30 PM, Tanuki will be graciously collecting donations for us until Saturday. Again, a donation of a non-perishable food item will get you a free sake shot!

We all know that you really don’t need these extras—you’d donate out of the goodness of your heart anyway—but surely a little sake and a chance to win cookbooks couldn’t hurt matters any.

C’mon gang! Let’s feed some people!
