They eat, they write, we read. But when it comes to raising money for a great cause, local food bloggers, writers, and even some professional chefs, are getting in the kitchen to make goodies themselves. Eat My Blog is a bi-annual bakesale organized by Cathy Danh of Gastronomy blog, with the help of some of the city's most beloved bloggers, foodies, and food pros; this Saturday at Tender Greens in West Hollywood marks its second occasion.

Last December the effort raised over $3,000 for the Los Angeles Regional Foodbank, and Danh says that this time around, the goal is to top that amount. With a staggering roster of baking bloggers, Eat My Blog promises to have dozens of sweet ways for the community at large to satisfy their sweet tooth and support a great cause. Danh explains the natural relationship between food aficionados and the recipient charity:

We decided to donate our proceeds to the LA Regional Foodbank because their mission resonates with the LA food blogging community. We're a group of people who make eating well a priority, so it makes sense that we'd want to extend that privilege to everyone in our city. Too many people go hungry everyday. This is our way of making sure that fewer people are food insufficient.
