Despite the dreary (read: terrible) weather, we had a phenomenal Blogger Bake Sale outside of Powell’s in the Pearl last weekend!
Fabiola of Not Just Baked was a superstar and organized us 10 bloggers, the space, donations and all the other details. We had a lot of really delicious treats for sale, great people and raised over $500 for Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign!!
Share Our Strength, which was also the beneficiary for Taste of the Nation, is a great non-profit organization with a mission to end childhood hunger. Through their No Kid Hungry campaign, money goes to local organizations like the Oregon Food Bank and Partners for Hunger-Free Oregon, and other similar charities across the nation. These non-profits coordinate programs like free/reduced lunches, school breakfasts and summer food service to low-income children who would not have access to meals otherwise. I especially love that they also work to teach families how to shop for and prepare healthy meals on a budget.
