Help Soldiers Eat Better

UPDATE 5/2011:  MIKE IS STATESIDE NOW SO NO LONGER NEEDS THESE DONATIONS.  Please contact your local VFW to see who your local soldiers are, I bet they could use an influx of goodies!

Wondering what to do with all of your holiday generosity? I read a blog called and stumbled across this post. I have copied and pasted but the photos don't come up. The list, the links and the address is here and I am running to Restaurant Depot, the Asian market and then to the Post Office to get my box off to these brave kids.

Happy Holidays to one and all.

Help Soldiers Eat Better!
Mike is one of our most helpful, long standing members of the Chef2Chef forums. He’s also an Army cook tasked with feeding hungry soldiers still stationed in Afghanistan. The problem: the military provides basic ingredients, but very few of the seasonings necessary to produce great tasting grub.

You can help by donating any of the following ingredients to Mike and his crew. Our soldiers serving overseas will thank you! We’ve had great success with this campaign in the past, but supplies are running low! Note that dollar and big box stores often sell these items for a fantastic price. If you can’t send much, don’t fret–every little bit helps.

If you’d like to participate, please send an email to the following email address to request the proper mailing address: chef2chefnet[at] – replace the [at] with a @–I modified it to foil spambots.

Thanks so much!

Mike’s Wish List:

Lawry’s season salt
Old bay
Bay leaves
Garlic powder
Onion powder
Curry powder
Chili powder
Liquid smoke
Crushed red pepper
Chicken veggie or beef base
Sriracha sauce
Cup a soup during the winter months
Tea, black and green
Gallon-size Ziplocs

Bonus Items:
Red Vines
Crunch and Munch
Instant Miso
Wasabi peas
Mixed Nuts
Ramen Noodles
Chex Mix

Flat-rate shipping boxes work great–they’ll work for overseas shipments to military sites.
Alcohol and pornography are prohibited (sorry!)
Take caution when sending liquids–double bag in Ziploc bags if there’s a chance they’ll leak.

Thanks so much!

look at the list take a guess cause sooner or later I'm gonna need it. improvise if you what I'll figure out how to use it.
