This year, Bloggers Without Borders is working in partnership with Share Our Strength’s The Great American Bake Sale & Gaby Dalkin on this year’s National Food Blogger Bake Sale! With nearly 1 in 5 kids in America struggling with hunger, it has never been more important to increase access to feeding programs that can help kids connect with the food they need to thrive. For the last two years, this blogging community has shown its support for Share Our Strength, always raising more money than the year before. Last year we raised $25,000 through 26 bake sales. This year, we have set a challenge: to raise $50,000!
With just $1 connecting a child to 10 meals, you can help Share Our Strength ensure that the more than 16 million kids facing hunger today never go hungry again.
HERE’s a list of bake sales that are already taking place. If you’re interested in participating in a bake sale, please reach out to the host. If there isn’t a bake sale taking place in your area, maybe you’d like to host one – more details on how to host a bake sale below!
Host a Bake Sale!
The first step in hosting a bake sale is registering at www.GreatAmericanBakeSale.org/signup. Registering will get you access to online fundraising tools and they’ll send you a poster and informational booklet. Additional tools and resources can be found in The Bake Sale Resources Center. They’ve got top 10 tips for your bake sale, flyers, stickers, pricing tips and much more!
If you don’t like to or simply don’t have the time to bake you can donate HERE.
Please help us create awareness and help educate the community about an issue that is often ignored: childhood hunger in America.
