Do you know where your next meal is coming from? If you’re like me you may already be thinking about meals many days down the road.

As you know, many children across the U.S. are not so blessed.

Share Our Strength has been working diligently to fight childhood hunger across America through many programs to raise awareness, educate and raise funds. This spring I’m honored to join many other food bloggers from all over the U.S. in the 1st Annual Food Bloggers Bake Sale as part of the Share Our Strength’s Great American Bake Sale.

The bake sale will be held on April 17 nationwide. You can participate too. Sign up to host a bake sale in your area, or join another one already in the works. Gaby from What’s Gaby Cooking has a list of food bloggers (by state) to contact for more information on how to get involved in your area.

Or if you’re in South Carolina and would like to join me for a local bake sale in the upstate or organize your own in your town, please leave a comment here or contact me. We’ll need a public venue (with permission/permits), helping hands to work during the sale, baked goodies and of course people to spread the word about the bake sale. Again, leave a comment here or contact me through my “Contact” page if you’re interested.

It will be a fun time to come together, bake some yummy goodies to share, while spreading the word about how we can end childhood hunger in the U.S.

Can’t wait to hear from you. Don’t forget to spread the word too!

    What a wonderful idea! Maybe we could use the church kitchen if a bunch of people want to get together and bake. A table at the jockey lot might be just the place to sell the cupcakes! It’d be worth checking into. By the way, if you’re a reader and looking for a good book to crawl into check out Same Kind of Different As Me by Ron Hall & Denver Moore. It’s the story of what can happen when we step out of our comfortable worlds to help someone in need. An unlikely pairing of a dirt-poor, illiterate, former-share-cropin’, homeless 50-something entering the life of a swank, upscale, southern, art dealer and the woman who binds them together. It’s a page turner and an inspiration if you’re feeling like stepping out and and helping someone in need. Ending childhood hunger sounds like a good place to start. Thanks for passing this opportunity on!

    We do Sacks of Love around here. A lady began the program in the local schools after she returned from a Kentucky mission trip. The children get a sack lunch with enough food to last them over the weekend. So many are going hungry over the weekend when school’s free lunches aren’t available.

    I’m going to check our area for a bake sale near me. Thanks for the heads up!

    Let me double check the dates but I would love to do one for my area. I have to show my boys that you can raise money for someone other than through a lemonade stand :)
