Every day I wear an orange band around my right wrist (write that 6 times) in support of one of my favorite causes, Strength.org and No Kid Hungry. It reminds me not only to be thankful every day, but also to just simply stay aware. It is easy for most of us to understand how many children and young adults in some of the poorest parts of the world struggle to find food everyday … But we don’t always remember how difficult it is for children in our own towns, and maybe even those that live on our same street are also faced with that daily challenge.
1 in 5 children in America wakes up each day without access to a meal.
That scares the hell out of me every time I write it or say it aloud.
But, it is the pledge of Strength.org that by 2015 these children will have access to programs and options so that they will no longer have that worry.
This Saturday I am raising money to contribute to this possibility by hosting a bake sale full of my homemade sweets.
The Bake Sale will feature:
Handmade Cinnamon Buns with Cream Cheese icing
Freshly baked goldfish crackers
Red Velvet Cake
Some of the best cookies you’ve ever tasted (promise)
and… ala the heavy hitters in this world … Frosting Shots.
I would love all of you to stop by and have a taste – but I know that isn’t always possible.
That being said, if any of these goods makes your mouth water so much that you can’t think straight –
shoot me an email gradtogourmet AT gmail DOT com.
Snail mail never hurt a cookie…
