This Saturday, food bloggers all across the country are coming together to hold a bake sale for Share Our Strength, a non-profit organization that aims to help feed the nearly 17 million (no, that is not a typo) children in America that are facing hunger.
The National Food Bloggers Bake Sale has a chapter in Los Angeles, and is spearheaded by food blogger Gaby of "Whats Gaby Cooking." This event allows for you to try out some of your favorite bloggers treats without having to bake it yourself, all while supporting a good cause. You can get a list of participants here, and it includes many well known bloggers and bakers like Food Woolf, Matt Bites, Lucy from Edible LA/Zester Daily, and Rene from the LA Times (who says she is baking a Momofuku crack pie).
You can help fight childhood hunger in America by going to the Grove this Saturday the 17th from 10:30 AM to 1:30 PM. The event takes place at Morel's, the French bistro that is adjacent to the parking lot and next to the fountain.
To put things into perspective, even with aid from the government and the private sector, 17 million children or almost one out of every four children face this issue. Share Our Strength aims to put an end to this problem by the year 2015. If you're going out of town this weekend or if you have friends and family in other states that might be interested in the cause, click here for more information. LAist contributors and other bloggers are also on hand for this event (most likely stuffing our faces) but come on out this Saturday for some great food and fun.
