  7. <h1>Freedom Food: FSFE to cook for its donors</h1>
  8. <p newsteaser="yes">For this year's round of fund-raising, the Free Software
  9. Foundation Europe (FSFE) has cooked up something special. The biggest donor
  10. of 2009 will share a cooking session with FSFE's President and other
  11. members of the organisation's executive team. FSFE is looking to raise
  12. 100,000 Euro during the last quarter of 2009.</p>

  21. <p>Free Software and cooking are both about creativity, skill and enjoying
  22. yourself. "Recipes can be used for any purpose, including sharing them with
  23. others, and making your own improvements. In these respects cooking is just
  24. like Free Software - you have the freedom to use, study, share and improve"
  25. says FSFE's President Karsten Gerloff.</p>
  26. <p>FSFE has been working for the Free Software community in Europe and beyond
  27. since 2001. Thanks to its supporters, the organisation has been able to
  28. break <a href="/activities/ms-vs-eu/ms-vs-eu.html">proprietary monopolies</a>
  29. , defend European developers and users against <a
  30. href="/campaigns/swpat/swpat.html">software patents</a>, and build the
  31. <a href="/activities/ftf">Freedom Task Force</a> into Europe's foremost
  32. expert group on legal aspects of Free Software.</p>
  33. <p>Many threats continue to face Free Software however - and FSFE continues to
  34. fight against them. Computer users in Europe are forced to use proprietary
  35. software on a daily basis. Closed standards build walls that restrict Free
  36. Software and its users. Interoperability in the European public sector is
  37. under attack, as proprietary software companies continue to push their
  38. agendas in Europe and around the world.</p>
  39. <p>These are just a few of the issues that donors are entitled to discuss with
  40. senior FSFE staff. "A lot of us at FSFE are passionate hobby chefs. We are
  41. looking forward to sharing a creative time with supporters of Free
  42. Software," says Gerloff.</p>
