With the holidays now in full swing and our hearts feeling thankful from Thanksgiving, we want to share an easy way to keep the joy of giving all season long. Participate in the Great American Bake Sale! Most of us indulge in baking yummy holiday treats during December like cookies, cakes, pies, or classic church window rolls. Why not spread the baked good love by helping out children in need?
Food Network TV Host, Sandra Lee, is the face of the Bake Sale Campaign and urges bakers to unite against childhood hunger:
“Nearly one in four children in America struggle with hunger. You can make a difference in these children’s lives and have fun too by hosting a Share Our Strength’s Great American Bake Sale. The funds you raise will support Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry Campaign. You can help end childhood hunger.”
Hosting a Bake Sale is easy. Have one at your local church, college campus (always a big hit!) or at your office or company holiday party. Visit GreatAmericanBakeSale.org for tons of information, FAQ, and templates for advertising, printable posters, and more. They’ve made it so easy to help!
Don’t have the time or resources to host your own bake sale? You can still help end childhood hunger by supporting a bake sale near you, a donation to your local food pantry, or by buying a copy of “Baking with Friends.” For every copy purchased, $5 will be donated to The Great American Bake Sale.
Now that’s extra calories you can feel good about! What do you think? Have you or would you ever participate in a Bake Sale? What yummy treats would you make?
