Food Sharing Network, a project of The Red Wagon Group, is celebrating the two-month anniversary of its website by joining the fight against hunger.
The website, foodsharingnetwork.com, features a blog dedicated to food and related topics. Recipes, photos, and commentary are the mainstay of the site, but creator and moderator Kathy Mathieu has added a new feature, free postings for deserving non-profit projects and organizations dedicated to the fight against hunger.
The addition of this philanthropic feature was part of the website’s vision from the beginning, said Mathieu. “When I was fortunate enough to secure such a meaningful domain name, I knew that I would use it eventually to help feed the hungry.” The site will post information about food drives, pantries, soup kitchens and other worthy initiatives. “I particularly hope to be of service to grass-roots efforts that do not have easy or affordable access to an Internet presence for listing details and guidelines for participation.”
Mathieu launched foodsharingnetwork.com at the end of May 2013. She has worked with websites since the mid 1990s, when she initiated the first interactive hospital website site in New Jersey. The site included a physician referral database, a first for the state.
Mathieu decided she would personally create a website about food when she realized that almost all conversations led to that topic. “I knew I would never run out of content or photos,” said Mathieu, an enthusiastic cook whose husband and site photo editor Chris Mathieu has been taking food photos for many years and also enjoys sharing good food.
Kathy Mathieu is the owner and proprietor of the site’s sponsor, The Red Wagon Group (TRWG).
“During its 14 years in business, TRWG has supported numerous charitable endeavors,” said Mathieu. “Helping feed hungry people is a cause especially near and dear to my heart.”
