Great American Bake Sale



Vintage Victuals is proud to be participating in Share Our Strength's Great American Bake Sale!

We'll be participating in a bake sale being held on
Saturday, April 11, 2009
from 11 AM to 2 PM
in Jefferson, Georgia.

The City of Jefferson hosts a HUGE Egg Hunt that day hosting kids from all over Northeast Georgia. We will be set up right next to the festivities. (Heaven forbid any child go without a sugar high on Easter weekend, right?)

Proceeds from the Great American Bake Sale go directly to grants for organizations that feed hungry children in after-school and summer programs, when they may not be able to get three square meals a day. We are working in connection with the Jackson County Boys and Girls Club to ensure that the money raised in our community will go to our neighbors in need.

So, local readers, please email jeffersonbakesale@gmail.com if you would like to participate in this great event! And check out our team's website here for more of the nitty gritties!

And far-away readers, never fear because you can participate, too! Please consider donating to our group on our team's website or think about hosting your own bake sale! Click on the banner at the top of this post to learn more about how you can get involved with this great project.

I will be doing a BIG round-up post here on VV with pictures from the bake sale, plus recipes for those contributors who wish to share their treats with my readers!

Finally, I ask that if you are a regular reader who wants to suggest a great bake sale recipe, please post a link to the recipe in a comment on this post!

Every little thing we do has an effect on others, so take just a moment to reach out and help stop hunger for the children in our communities. Thank you for all your love and support!

This isn't my recipe, but I found it a while ago and it's good for anyone who really can't bake. ;)

Just add 1 cup of peanut butter, 1 cup of sugar, and 1 egg to a bowl and mix, then bake for around 10 minutes at 325 degrees. :)
