Seattle Food Bloggers Team up to Bake for Share Our Strength

Local Food Bloggers to Participate

100 Mercer St, Seattle

I am getting together the Seattle Food Bloggers to raise money for Share Our Strength. Last year was a huge success! Come eat, meet and mingle with the bloggers! And stock up on desserts for the week. Gluten-free and Nut -Free options will be available.

The sale by Seattle food bloggers—one of dozens nationwide—will take place at the Uptown Metropolitan Market on Lower Queen Anne on Saturday morning, May 14th, from 9:30 AM until noon.

The national effort to involve bloggers in the Great American Bake Sale was spearheaded by Gaby Dalkin, a personal chef in Los Angeles and author of a blog called WhatsGabyCooking.com.

All funds raised through the event support Share Our Strength’s efforts to end childhood hunger in America by helping fund after-school and summer nutrition programs. 14.1 million children in America live in poverty. That’s 5.5% more than a year ago. (For a four-person family, that means getting by on less than $420 a week.)

Here are some of the bloggers and the list is updated all the time, so keep checking back! If you are not here and are baking, please send me an email.
