The food blogging community has gathered to help one of their own, a blogger and food writer in need, Jennifer Perillo, food blogger over at In Jennie’s Kitchen. A few weeks ago, Jennifer lost her husband to a sudden and massive heart attack while he was out riding his bicycle with one of their daughters. Close friend Shauna Ahern of Gluten Free Girl has started “A Fund for Jennie” via Bloggers without Borders, a new nonprofit organization created by Maggy Keet and Erika Pineda-Ghanny.
