Nearly 1 in 4 children in the US do not have enough food to eat — that’s nearly 17 million kids. This weekend, Share our Strength kicks off their annual “Great American Bake Sale” campaign — where volunteers across the country host bake sales to raise funds for SOS’s efforts to end child hunger. Saturday will be the first-ever National Food Bloggers Bake Sale, to further help raise awareness for this important cause.
The DC bake sale will be held this Saturday, April 17, from 9am-12noon at DC’s Historic Eastern Market. So come on by and look for our table outside near the farmers line.
Some of the local bloggers who will be participating:
- Martha of A Measured Memory
- Jenna of Modern Domestic
- Kenneth of Indoor Garden-er
- Marie-Noelle of Lunching in the DMV
- Cathy of Mrs. Wheelbarow
- Maiy of Beans Rice Life
- Sally of Come to the Table
- Amber of Live Love to Bake
- and yours truly, Colleen of FoodieTots
If you’d like to chip in to help us reach our goal, please visit our team page to make a contribution now. And we hope to see you at Eastern Market on Saturday!
