Find a Bake Sale in Your Area

Posted on the 04 April 2011 by Steveliu @charitablegift

Seems that baked goods are making a comeback. Maybe it’s because we need more comfort food during uncertain economic times, but it seems that everywhere you turn there’s a cupcake or a huge cookie there to make you smile.

Some of the best baked cupcakes, brownies, cookies, muffins, and cakes I’ve had in my life weren’t out of a slick professional bakery. They were from a little neighborhood bake sale. As delicious as those slick new boutique bakeries in the big City are, sometimes they’re missing a little ingredient that those little fingers baking for their softball team or band or local charity: TLC.

Share Our Strength is an organization based out of Washington whose goal is to eradicate childhood hunger in the U.S. They’ve done something clever. They’ve reached out to volunteers around the country, but instead of going door to door and asking for money, they’re telling them to open a bake sale in their community. It’s called the Great American Bake Sale.

If you to go their Bake Sale Finder, chances are you’ll find one near you. And if you don’t, just go to their Bake Sale Home Page and you’ll find all kinds of information on how you can start your own.

They’ve recruited professional chef Sandra Lee (no relation to Sara Lee…or Duncan Hines for that matter) to be their spokesperson. Sandra even wrote a cookbook called the Bake Sale Cookbook where 25% of proceeds will support Great American Bake Sale.

During good times, it’s easy to give to those who are less fortunate. But it’s during tough times that it’s not so easy–and when those less fortunate people need help most of all. Start this tax year off right by making a generous donation to help Share our Strength feed hungry children in our own backyard, and support those who are giving of their time and ovens to help.
