Food Blogger Bake Sale this Saturday!

One of the greatest benefits to being a food blogger is the community I’ve been welcomed into. Throughout the past two years I’ve gotten to know many others who share my passion for all things food both in Chicago and across the country.

Being a culinary professional, among other things, has also opened my eyes to the multitude of food and hunger issues facing so many people in the U.S. So when Maris from In Good Taste asked for volunteers to help with the Chicago Food Blogger Bake Sale, of course I said yes. It’s one of many going on across the country this Saturday, a brilliant idea from Gaby of What’s Gaby Cooking. All proceeds from these bake sales will go to Share Our Strength, a national organization that works hard to make sure no kid grows up hungry.

Whatever city you’re in this weekend, please find your local Food Blogger Bake Sale and help support SOS!
