Also known as Fat Tuesday, Mardi Gras and Fetter Dienstag, Pancake Tuesday occurs annualy in February on the day before Lent. It is the Breakfast Of Love Miracle Network's official day of goodwill.
In addition to our daily efforts to bolster contributions to food-related charities, the network aims to promote Pancake Tuesday as a day of universal food charity. North America is only now begining to embrace this holiday which has been celebrated throughout other parts of the world since 1445.
It is our hope that new traditions - such a giving muffins to the needy on Pancake Tuesday morning - will further popularize the holiday in the United States.
