Sharing the Holy Meal is a Virtue of Pastafarianism. I propose that each Pastafarian donates to their local Food Bank as they can afford in honour of Holiday, in the form of pasta and / or sauce. Other food-type charitable donations in His Noodly Name are welcomed; we'll convert based on dollar value or whatever else we can figure out.
If we can figure out how many individual spaghetti noodles are in a bag of spaghetti, we can aim for a goal of 1 000 000 noodles!
Please donate what you can for those who must go without pasta, and post here to keep a tally of our contributions in His Noodly Name. I might even be able to talk the Admins into awarding the title of Pasta Philanthropist Extraordinare to the person with the biggest donation, but do it for His Noodlyness, not for the title!
Happy Holiday, Merry Saucemas, and a Happy Noodle Year!

*so far this is the first goat (cheese) donation, so I'll assign a noodle equivalent at 1g = 1 noodle. Since cheese costs MUCH more than pasta, I'm probably short-changing amenabletopasta, and have added a 10,000 noodle bonus for sustainable pastability (and meatball potential). The conversions are on page 4. Numbers are rounded to the nearest 100 noodles.
