Triangle Food Bloggers Unite to Help End Childhood Hunger

On May 14, 2011, Johanna Kramer and Matt Lardie will host the Triangle’s first food bloggers bake sale to help end childhood hunger. As part of the Great American Bake Sale, food bloggers from across the country will hold bake sales in their respective states where all generated monies will be donated to Share our Strength, an organization that seeks to end childhood hunger by connecting youth with nutritious food.

The Food Blogger Bake Sale will unite 20 of the Triangle’s food bloggers. Each blogger will bake a savory or sweet item (vegan options available) that will be for sale to the public from 10am-1pm on May 14, 2011. Community members can purchase tickets and then exchange those tickets for baked goods. One ticket is $3 or four tickets for $10, with each ticket good for one baked item. The Triangle Food Blogger Bake Sale will be held at The Art Market at Vega Metals in Durham (214 Hunt Street between the downtown YMCA and the Farmers Market). For more information, please contact Johanna at Johanna.m.kramer@gmail.com.

    I’m not sure what I’m making yet, but it won’t be vegan (no offense) and it will have to endure the sun and stay fresh.

Its giving me ideas for in preparation for the next summer to even start something like this at a community level. Will keep the thought alive in my Toshiba Canvio Plus.
