Last Saturday was the Second Annual LA Food Bloggers Bake Sale benefiting Share Our Strength, an organization that helps fight against childhood hunger in America. Did you know that nearly 1 out of every 4 children are at risk of hunger? That’s pretty shocking if you ask me. So if a little butter and sugar can help nourish a child and help them succeed — then I’m all for it! Gaby of What’s Gaby Cooking? organized and ran a very successful bake sale with over 50 food bloggers, celebrity chefs, and pastry chefs contributing to the cause. A huge thanks to all of the people that came out to BLD to support our cause – with your help we were able to raise over $2,300! The funds will go back to our local community to help stamp out childhood hunger.
Here’s a group shot of some of the wonderful participants: L to R: Gaby from What’s Gaby Cooking, Matt from Matt Bites, Rachael from La Fuji Mama, Judah and Nikki from Pennies on a Platter, Nancy from A Communal Table, Brooke from Food Woolf, Carrie from Deliciously Organic, me, and Melissa from The Fresh 20.
Here are the links to some of these fun recipes pictured above:
