Before jumping to the conclusion that the Capital Area Food Bank might be up to keyword-stuffing machinations, hold that thought.
Still confused why the Capital Area Food Bank is hyping up the largest, most comprehensive event serving government technology professionals? Oh, perhaps because FOSE organizers are hugely invested in helping the food bank reduce hunger and are encouraging IT govies to give back before and at the event.
Before the event, tweet, re-tweet, and then tweet some more. For every tweet with hashtag #FOSEFOOD14, FOSE will provide a meal to the Capital Area Food Bank.
Those lacking inspiration to transform 140 characters into food should consider copying and pasting this gem:
Help #Govies support @foodbankmetrodc! For every tweet, FOSE will donate a meal. Plz RT! bit.ly/FOSECAFB #FOSEFOOD14
Hit send and ka-ching. The CAFB just unlocked a meal to provide to an individual at risk of hunger.
At the event, please come equipped with two or three non-perishables, preferably of the most-wanted variety. Food bank staff will be at booth 537 ready to collect food donations and talk about hunger in the area.
