Triangle food blogger bake sale coming up!
“Share our Strength, a national non-profit, is ending childhood hunger in America by connecting children with the nutritious food they need to lead healthy, active lives. Through its No Kid Hungry Campaign – a national effort to end childhood hunger in America by 2015 – Share our Strength ensures children in need are enrolled in federal nutrition programs, invests in community organizations fighting hunger, teaches families how to cook healthy, affordable meals, and builds public-private partnerships to end childhood hunger, at the state and city level.”
● More than 17 million kids in America struggle with hunger, that’s nearly one in four children
● 9.4 million kids get free or reduced price school breakfast on an average school day, but 10.6 million eligible kids don’t yet get them.
The Food Blogger Bake Sale will unite 20 of the Triangle’s food bloggers. Each participant will bake a savory or sweet dish that will be for sale to the public from 10am-12pm on May 14, 2011. Community members can purchase tickets and then exchange those tickets for baked goods.
