give back. [Share Our Strength’s Great American Bake Sale – Los Angeles]

May 1st, 2012 by | comments


This past Saturday, food bloggers across the country hosted and participated in Share Our Strength’s Great American Bake Sale to end childhood hunger. Thanks to Chung-Ah at Damn Delicious and Geni at Sweet and Crumby for hosting the Los Angeles bake sale. The 30 plus bloggers who participated raised $700 for the organization. :)

It was so nice to finally meet Geni, whose blog I’ve been following for over a year, and meet some new bloggers–Samantha at The Little Ferraro Kitchen and Gerry at Foodness Gracious. After the bake sale, the four of us got to know each other over a delicious lunch at BLD, where the event took place. I can’t wait for next year!

Samantha, Sara, me and Chung-Ah.

Chung-Ah‘s sugar cookie fries and vanilla cupcake hamburgers.

    What an incredible event, Caroline. Was it the bloggers buying each other’s goodies or non bloggers too? I’ll have to check into if there is something like this in Toronto, sounds like a great cause and it could be incredibly fun too!
