1000 dishes v. Hunger

This is a bit late, but better late than never.  If anyone has pics of this event from last week, please let us know! All proceeds go toward fighting worldwide hunger. Here’s a link.

It is an event whose aim is to sensitize the population’s awarness to the big problem of starvation on the occasion of the World Food Day on October 16th, 2011.

You, WHERE ARE YOU? is an initiative closely linked to the city of Bologna in Italy. It is exactly in the heart of the city, from Piazza Maggiore, where the challenge to hunger starts.

10,000 empty dishes will be placed on the ground in Piazza Maggiore, as a symbol of worldwide starvation.

You, WHERE ARE YOU? Will you join us to fill the empty dishes?
You, WHERE ARE YOU? With 5 euros, the equivalent of a pasta, the dishes will turn from white toblue.
You, WHERE ARE YOU? on the streets, on the web, with us.

Thanks to your help, the blue dishes will shape a tractor.
