The Feeding America Food Pantry mug giveaway has ended.
All 50 mugs have been given away in exchange for a $25 donation to Michigan's Western Upper
Peninsula Food Pantry.  The goal of $1,250 in donations was reached in just over a week's time
thanks to the generous contributions of 30 people from around the country.

With that said, please still consider donating to a Feeding America Food Pantry of your choosing.  
Food pantries across the country need help stocking their shelves to feed
thousands of hungry families.  Thanks.

See below for steps and progress in the making of mugs for this project.
