SF Food Bloggers Bake Sale- this weekend!

SF Food Bloggers Bake Sale Badge

On a recent trip to Dallas, Texas, I was driving down the street when I saw a sight that made me smile. Two girls stood on a corner holding a handmade sign on poster board. They yelled at my passing car the words hand-written on that sign: “BAKE SALE!” Their sign indicated their bake sale was for a charitable cause. Getting involved at a young age to help make a difference in the world around them- these girls were getting a head start on what it means to live lives of generosity and with eyes wide open.

So consider this my handmade sign, though the lettering is done with pixels instead of marker. This Saturday, head on over to the Food Bloggers Bake Sale, taking place at 18 Reasons in the Mission and at Kiehls in Pacific Heights.

I have been organizing the Bake Sale with Anita, Irvin, and Shauna. We have enjoyed planning and putting together details to make this year’s Bake Sale a success! For a full list of the fabulous bakers participating, visit the Food Bloggers Bake Sale website.

All proceeds go to Share Our Strength, a national non-profit I’ve written about before with a mission for “no kid hungry.” Through them I have learned that last year 17 million children found themselves in food unstable households. This is an indicator to me that the recession has done much to touch the smallest members of families as well as those Americans who have lost their jobs.

Stop by the Bake Sale and see the mélange of baked goods, meet the food bloggers who baked them and pick up some goodies to share with your friends and families: brownies, cookies and cakes for a truly sweet cause!

About Anneliesz

Food. Poetry. People. Art. If I was Julie Andrews singing her song, these would be some of my favorite things. My biggest food fail was something we'll call "Tuna Surprise," but that never kept me out of the kitchen. Cooking is my own playtime. While I'm not a chef and would never claim to be anything less than an experimenter of flavors and textures, I sure do love to feed people. Then there's my love of writing which commenced at a wee age over a talking pen named "Percy". I love rolling words around my tongue in different languages. Art camp taught me the importance of not having an eraser. Life is an adventure and one whose marrow I seek to suck as much out of as possible. Join me as I live my life en route.
