2013 Central Florida Food Blogger Bake Sale
This Saturday we will be setting up with a group of great food bloggers at the Winter Garden Harvest Festival to sell some yummy baked goods and raise money for ending childhood hunger.
Here’s a little background about the bake sale:
This is third year of the Central Florida Food Blogger Bake Sale to benefit Share our Strength – this just one of many bake sales held all over the United States to raise money. Last year this bake sale raised over $1400 and our goal this year is to raise at least $2000.
Funds raised by nationwide Bake Sales for No Kid Hungry support Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign, which is ending childhood hunger in this nation by ensuring all children get the healthy food they need, every day. By connecting kids in need with nutritious food and teaching their families how to cook healthy, affordable meals, the No Kid Hungry campaign surrounds children with healthy food where they live, learn and play. Share Our Strength’s focus is on long-term change – the difference between just feeding a child today and making sure that children in the United States never go hungry. Since 1984, Share Our Strength has raised and invested more than $376 million in the fight against hunger —including more than $9.6 million through Bake Sale for No Kid Hungry.
Where and When: At the Winter Garden Harvest Festival on Saturday, May 4th from 9am to 2pm. Even if you are on a diet, make sure to come out and throw a few coins in the donation box or buy a raffle ticket and check out the Winter Garden Harvest Festival. It is an amazing event and there is an awesome splash pad for kids (both big and little). If you are not near Winter Garden, click here to find a bake sale near you.
