In the years, putting together the Seattle Food Blogger events (since the end of 2007) and since the beginning of Foodportunity , I have come to know so many people and so many bloggers. It’s amazing to hang out with people who have a passion for food and even more amazing to see how bloggers can come together to support the community. When I heard about the national Food Blogger Bake Sale, I knew I had to get Seattle together for this.
All this is part of a National Food Blogger Bake Sale lead by Gaby Dalkin of What’s Gaby Cooking? She had a vision of having a food blogger bake sale in every city and her dream is becoming a reality. Go Gaby!
So here are the details of the Seattle Food Blogger Bake Sale.
We will make sure to have a large variety of baked goods from Seattle’s blogger entourage. The Metropolitan Market Uptown generously offered us their space and the bloggers will be offering the recipes to take home with the cookies. There is also free parking for bake sale shoppers.
Funds raised through Great American Bake Sale support Share Our Strength’s efforts to end childhood hunger in America.
When: April 17, 2010
Metropolitan Market Uptown
100 Mercer Street

Recipes will be available too.
Nearly 17 million— almost one in four—children in America face hunger. Despite the good efforts of governments, private-sector institutions and everyday Americans, millions of our children still don’t have daily access to the nutritious meals they need to live active, healthy lives.
