I have to say that entering the fray in Babble’s Top 100 Food Mom Bloggers started out simply as a way of honoring my friend Mother Connie. It has since become more about honoring her AND getting people aware of the impact she is making in the lives of the people who visit her Food Stamps Cooking Club Blog. You see, Connie has always been about helping people be healthy (she teaches ways to eat healthier while on a tight budget) but she also truly loves connecting with people and encouraging them.
Her blog is one of community. The people who visit there aren’t simply people who get their groceries from SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program-food stamps)…even though that is the name of the blog. It is also written for, and contributed to by, people who receive WIC (Women, Infants, and Children), Angel Food Ministries, Commodities, Farmer’s Market coupons or groceries from local food pantries. Connie encourages people to participate with their cooking tips, shopping or marketing tips, health information and to ask questions that she or her readers may have an answer to.
All of this is done with the intention of helping people to stretch their food dollars and to shop, prepare and serve the healthiest meals that they can to their families. Connie not only accomplishes this…she has been an inspiration to many. For all of those reasons…I ask you to go here to Babble’s Top 100 Mom Food Bloggers and nominate her. All you have to do is find her on page 1 or 2 and click on the “like” button to vote for her. Thanks a lot. Oh, and go visit her blog…and leave her a comment; she loves comments…tell her Write Where You Are sent you!
