Great American Bake Sale

Here's a summer activity for the kids that can help others.

Share Our Strength's Great American Bake Sale helps to raise funds to end childhood hunger in America. At the website you'll find tips and tools to help you hold a successful bake sale.

Why Should You Hold a Bake Sale?
1. 100% of the funds you raise help feed kids.
2. Funds you raise from your local bake sale stay local, supporting after-school and summer feeding programs in your community —food programs that hundreds and thousands of kids depend on.
3. It's a fun solution with a large impact.
4. You can host bake sale based on your schedule and in your community. You don't have to train for six months to run a marathon or make a large donation to make a huge difference!

When you sign up for your Participant Kit you'll get: Official Bake Sale poster, Participant Brochure with recipes and tips, and valuable coupons from their sponsors.
You'll also gain access to your own team Web page to promote your bake sale and collect donations online.

An email from a HP reader:
We signed up as a site for the Great American Bake Sale at the Moravian Theological Seminary. For a final presentation in our Christian Ethics class, I spoke on Greed and Hunger. Wanting to conclude with something concrete to actually address the problem (specifically of hungry children in America, I baked and sold goodies to my classmates. Thanks for passing along this information to Farmers. - Judy
