bpa-complete-logoThe “RV Cooking Show” and food-drive partner Best Parks in America recently wrapped up the Memorial Day Online Food Drive with 200 items donated to the Food Bank Coalition of San Luis Obispo County in California. 

rv-cooking-show-promo-final-aCampers and RVers from all walks of life were asked to fight hunger by leaving a comment on the “RV Cooking Show” Online Memorial Day Food Drive blog entry memorializing someone that made a difference to their lives. Fifty RV Cooking Show blog readers participated, according to Evanne Schmarder, left, producer and hoster of the “RV Cooking Show.” Read their comments at 

The RV Cooking Show and Best Parks in America each pledged one non-perishable food item for each comment left on the blog. The Albertsons Supermarket in Morro Bay, Calif., matched the 100-item purchase bringing the total number of food items to donate to 200. 

“The number of food-insecure (hungry) Americans has skyrocketed in recent months,” noted Schmarder. “Thanks to the generosity of those that participated in the RV Cooking Show Online Food Drive a child, a senior, a parent, a veteran will go to bed full tonight. That’s a tremendous accomplishment that once again proves each one of us can make a difference.” 

A virtual cooking class on wheels with an RV travel twist, the “RV Cooking Show” takes viewers on adventures to some of the most sought-after or interesting but little-known RV locales in the country and then creates a healthy, easy, delicious destination-related dish in host Evanne Schmarder’s RV kitchen. The show is currently seeking sponsors. Schmarder may be contacted at or log on to for more details.
