It’s almost spring, and that means that it’s almost time for the San Francisco Food Bloggers Bake Sale!
For the last two years, food bloggers across the country have banded together to hold bake sales in their hometowns in support of Share Our Strength, a national organization dedicated to ending childhood hunger. I had the honor of organizing the San Francisco bake sales, which have been resounding successes – last year we raised over $2500 in one day. I’m proud to be part of the event this year again. On April 28th, bake sales will be held all across the US by food bloggers, with all proceeds donated to Share Our Strength.
Last year I was joined in my organizing efforts by Irvin, Shauna, and Annelies, fellow bakers, bloggers, and all around amazing people. We’re all back this year and hope you can be part of our bake sale! I’m so excited that some of you have already been e-mailing me about the bake sale – I’m very touched that you remember the event and want to participate! Please be sure to sign up at the official San Francisco Food Blogger Bake Sale website – we have a dedicatd bake sale e-mail address so it’s easier to keep track of all the volunteers. If you send an e-mail to my dessertfirst e-mail, you might get missed!
Our location this year is Omnivore Books, the location of the first bake sale in 2010. We’re excited to return!
What are the San Francisco Food Blogger Bake Sale details?
When: Saturday, April 28, 11 AM to 4 PM
Where: Omnivore Books, 3885a Cesar Chavez St, San Francisco, CA
How can you help?
If you live in the Bay Area and you want to participate in the bake sale, please go to the SF Bake Sale website and sign up to volunteer! It doesn’t matter if you have a food blog or not, only a desire to bake! We need volunteers to help bake up goods to sell, and I would love a chance to meet all you local foodies! Bring a plate of cookies or a cake, whatever you feel like contributing!
If you aren’t able to bake up something, please come by and help support us! Purchase something yummy and make a donation to Share our Strength!
If you don’t live near San Francisco but would still like to participate, check Gaby’s page (the national organizer) to see if there’s another bake sale going on near where you live.
Here is some additional information on Share Our Strength and The Great American Bake Sale.
See my recaps of last year’s bake sale and the 2010 bake sale to see a bit of all the excitement.
I hope to see you all at the new bake sale homepage, and to see you April 28 at the bake sale!

Hi Anita! How’re you? Hope you’re doing well. It was such a bummer that didn’t get to run into you at all during the Foodbuzz Taste Pavillion last Nov 2011. OH how I wish I am in SF right now. I stayed the remainder days at Hotel Tomo and it’s so close to Filmore St. I could still remember where Kiehls is. Would certainly love to support and buy as many baked goodies.. Hopefully I will have the opportunity next time round. Do stay in touch and have a good weekend ahead!! Cheers, Jo
