More than 17 million kids in America struggle with hunger, that’s nearly one in four children. The national non-profit organization “Share our Strength” works to end childhood hunger in America by connecting children with the nutritious food they need to lead healthy, active lives.
Johanna Kramer of Durhamfoodie Blog and Matt Lardie of Green Eats Blog will host the Triangle’s first ever food blogger bake sale to benefit ‘Share our Strength’ as part of the Great American Bake Sale. This event was started in 2010 by Gaby Dalkin of “What’s Gaby Cooking,” food bloggers from across the country will unite to end childhood hunger by holding bake sales in their states. All money generated will be donated back to Share our Strength.
I am excited to participate in the first Triangle area bake sale. We have a vibrant food blogger community here and it is great to harness the energy for such an important cause. Community members can purchase tickets and then exchange those tickets for baked goods. One ticket is $3 or four tickets for $10, with each ticket good for one baked item. If interested in participating, please email greeneatsblog (at) gmail (dot) com.
Come out, get some treats and support and great cause!
