Share Our Strength’s Third Annual Food Blogger Bake Sale

Hey, friends! I’m excited to announce that once again, my friend and fellow food blogger, Stefani Pollack of Cupcake Project, and I are St. Louis’s hosts for Share Our Strength’s Third Annual Food Blogger Bake Sale, coordinated by Gaby Dalkin of What’s Gaby Cooking.

2012 Food Blogger Bake Sale

Last year, St. Louis food bloggers and avid home bakers raised over $800 to help Share Our Strength ensure that no child in America grows up hungry. Weaving together a net of community groups, activists, and food programs to catch children at risk of hunger and make sure they have nutritious food where they live, learn, and play, Share Our Strength is the leading national organization working to combat childhood hunger in America.

Once again, we’re hosting our bake sale at Sappington Farmers’ Market, and this year, we hope to not only meet, but exceed last year’s total … and that’s where you can help!

Are you a home baker who can bake something from scratch (cakes, cookies, brownies, pies, fudge, cupcakes, anything)? We are looking for baked goods to sell. You don’t need to be a food blogger, and your baked goods don’t have to be gourmet. If you can help by donating (even if it’s just a small amount), we’d really appreciate it!

Do you like to volunteer your time for worthy causes? Well, you’re in luck because we need volunteers to help the day of the event setting up, selling baked goods, and cleaning up. It’s a wonderful opportunity to help a worthy charity … and you’ll get to hang out with some awesome folks!

Are you someone who likes to eat baked goods? Okay, who isn’t! If so, mark April 28th on your calendars now and then show up between 10:00 am and 2:00 pm and buy some guaranteed-to-be-delicious yummies!

If you are interested in baking or volunteering, feel free to drop me an email at rhubarbandhoney@yahoo.com or head over to Cupcake Project and fill out the sign up form. And if you don’t live near St. Louis, remember that this is a nationwide effort. Check out the list of Food Blogger Bake Sales by state to get involved in a bake sale near you … and if there isn’t one in your area, I encourage you to step up and host one yourself!

Hope to see you all on April 28th at Sappington Farmers’ Market! Happy Baking!

    Cool beans!  Nice idea.  At the moment I’ve got a schedule conflict, but let me see if I can clear that so I can bake something to contribute.  Thanks for letting us know.
