SOS Great American Bake Sale

Welcome Washington Post Sietsema's Table readers!

Someone out there (maybe a Post reader?) found the time to send me a message kindly asking that I post information about Share Our Strength's Great American Bake Sale on my blog. I've seen fliers for this everywhere and am a bit familiar with the organization - my husband has run in some of their road races. I guess if there is any cause to promote in this forum it would be a food-related one, and this one seems worthy to me.

So instead of this post being a recipe for your next meal, consider it a recipe to give back.

Today, more than 12 million children in the United States do not know when their next meal will come. Unfortunately, this number continues to rise as these difficult economic times are leaving more and more people jobless, without homes, and unable to provide food for their families.

What can you do?

1. Sign-up to host a bake sale.

2. Buy the virtual Great American Bake Sale eBook.

3. Post a ChipIn widget or banner on your blog.

Make a difference in a child’s life by signing up and purchasing a virtual cookbook today! 100% of the proceeds from this eBook will benefit Share Our Strength’s Great American Bake Sale, which is a national effort that encourages Americans to host bake sales in their communities to help end childhood hunger. Funds raised support summer and after-school feeding programs in your community that thousands of kids depend on.

Once you have purchased your virtual Great American Bake Sale cookbook, double your impact and use the recipes to host your own Great American Bake Sale! Hosting a Bake Sale is a fun and easy way to make a big impact! To register your Bake Sale or for more information, please visit
Any maybe consider making one of these cupcakes?

Thank you for this beautiful post. By the way, I think Beets and Bonbons is a great name for a blog.
