Have you heard of The Great American Bake Sale with Share our Strength? If not, you should know about it. Share Our Strength's Great American Bake Sale is a national campaign that mobilizes Americans to end childhood hunger by holding bake sales in their communities. Great American Bake Sale proceeds are granted to organizations in communities across America to help provide at-risk children with nutritious meals when they’re needed most during the summer, and afterschool.
We were very excited to be a part of this. Since some of the "rules" have changed, and there's more stipulations put on what's sold at the bake sales, more businesses are getting involved. We helped two high school students who wanted to make a difference in their community. They were not allowed to bake their own products for the sale, so they were dependant on donations from local bakeries to have items to sell. We were happy to step up with several packs of cookies. The girls' bake sale was held in downtown Safety Harbor during one of their events. A big shout out to these two amazing girls for getting involved in helping their community. See . . . I have high hopes that my daughters will become fabulous teenages, they are still out there!!
I also have to note here that Duff from Ace of Cakes also participated in this event. Yep, we're right up there with the cool kids. Hope everyone who purchased our cookies enjoyed them thoroughly, and a big yummy thank you to each of you for supporting a great cause!!
