will bake for food

Hello friends! It has been too long. Since I was here last I conquered migraines, was a single parent for 3 long weeks, got very little sleep, and spent a dreamy 5 days in NYC with great friends. I’m so anxious to get back here and cook for you, and I promise that day will be soon. But for right now, I’d like to invite you to join me for an event that is very dear to my heart.

Will Bake for Food is a food blogger bake sale, put on by myself and Jenny Richards of Purple House Dirt, to benefit the Emergency Feeding Program. Our second annual event to help fight hunger in our community will take place Saturday, November 12, 2011, from 11 am to 2pm (or until we run out) at the University Heights Center in Seattle (you may know it as the big building next to the University District Farmer’s Market).

Here’s how it works: bring non-perishable food items or monetary donations (cash or check payable to the Emergency Feeding Program) to trade for goodies baked by your favorite local food bloggers. Taste treats from famous bloggers and discover the sweet talents of new ones. Mingle. Drink coffee. Sip local apple cider.

Last year’s event raised $1,000 and nearly 1 ton (2,000 lbs!) of food. This year our goal is to double those numbers and help feed even more hungry tummies all over this city. We can’t do it without your help. Read our blog, follow us on Twitter, grab a badge, and most importantly, mark your calendars for 11-12-11.

Fight Hunger. Eat Cake. Will Bake for Food.
