Great American Bake Sale

Share Our Strength's Great American Bake Sale®, co-presented by Domino® Sugar and C and H®® Campaign, Share Our Strength’s national effort to end childhood hunger in America by 2015. Since 2003, more than 1.7 million people have participated in Great American Bake Sale, raising more than $6 million to make sure there is no kid hungry in America. Great American Bake Sale is supported by official bakeware partner Chicago Metallic, national television partner Food Network, national magazine partner Family Circle, and official baking ingredient partner Solo. Visit Sugar, and Duncan Hines®, is a national effort that encourages Americans to host bake sales in their communities to support the No Kid Hungry.

More than 17 million children - that’s nearly 1 in 4 - in the United States, do not know when their next meal will come.  Unfortunately, this number continues to rise as these difficult economic times are leaving more and more people jobless, without homes and unable to provide food for their families.  But there is hope.  Thanks to programs like Share Our Strength’s Great American Bake Sale we can all do our part to help families struggling to make ends meet. 

Funds raised through Great American Bake Sale, support Share Our Strength’s efforts to surround kids with nutritious food where they live, learn and play.  Share Our Strength helps close gaps between nutritious food programs and families in need.  We help develop lasting solutions for hungry families—it the difference between feeding a family tonight and ensuring that they never again have to worry about their next meal.
