Share Our Strength is a nonprofit committed to ending childhood hunger in America by 2015. The organization has developed a range of programs to raise funds and awareness for the No Kid Hungry Campaign, including Taste Of The Nation (tasting events), A Tasteful Pursuit (a national touring dinner series) and the Great American Bake Sale, which is exactly what it sounds like. Sign up to host a bake sale in your community. Details after the jump.
Bake sales are a sweet, time-tested way for people to band together and do good by making, selling and buying treats. We love the idea of doing this with friends and family. There are a few different ways to get involved, including community sales, workplace sales and a nationwide bake sale.
You can form a new bake sale team or join an existing team on the Great American Bake Sale site.
The Food Network's Sandra Lee is coordinating the World's Largest Bake Sale on March 29, 2011. Visit her Facebook page to learn more about events in your community.
