It's blogger bake sale time

Posted By on Wed, Apr 23, 2014 at 11:01 AM


It's that time of year again when bloggers from all over Arkansas get together, bake up a bunch of delicious treats, and sell them to the public to benefit No Kid Hungry, a national organization dedicated to ending childhood hunger. On May 3rd, groups from all over the country will be holding these bake sales, and in years past, Arkansas has punched well above our weight class, beating out larger cities to become one of the top money-raisers in the country. Organizer Christie Ison, author of the blog Fancy Pants Foodie, has turned this bake sale into one of the premiere, don't-miss foodie events of the year, and this year should be the biggest and best yet. The event is being held at 6th and Main Street in North Little Rock, and since you're all going to be in the neighborhood for the Arkansas Times Heritage Hog Roast anyway, you may as well come early to select from a vast variety of cakes, pastries, and breads. Here's the press release wherein you'll find all you need to know about who, what, when, where, and why:

Date: May 3, 2013, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.

What: Arkansas Blogger Bake Sale and national Blogger Bake Sale, benefiting No Kid Hungry

Where: 6th and Main Streets, North Little Rock Adjacent to Argenta Certified Arkansas Farmers’ Market

Who: Bloggers from across Arkansas, including members of Arkansas Women Bloggers

Arkansas bloggers are joining bloggers across the country on Saturday, May 3 to participate in the national Blogger Bake Sale, benefiting No Kid Hungry, an organization committed to ending childhood hunger in America. The local event is 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 6th and Main Streets in North Little Rock, adjacent to the Argenta Certified Arkansas Farmers’ Market. All proceeds from the sale will go to No Kid Hungry.

All No Kid Hungry programs in Arkansas are administered by the Arkansas Hunger Relief Alliance.

The sale will feature baked goods by local bloggers and Twitter personalities, as well as from central Arkansas professional bakers such as Sweet Love, Dempsey Bakery and kBird.

A new element this year will include an online silent auction, including larger baked goods such as whole cakes and non-food items from area businesses. The auction begins on April 14 here.

Bake sale planners hope raise $3,500 for No Kid Hungry this year. Those wishing to donate funds directly may do so at this link.
