Great American Bake Sale
After nearly months of planning and deciding, our 2nd Annual Great American Bake Sale is coming up this weekend! Saturday will be a Spectacular day of events- our Nevada County Bakers will be selling homemade, nutritious baked goods at Pioneer Park in Nevada City and members of the community will be participating in the Food Bank’s Race To End Hunger . The 5K/10K runs and 5K walk begin simultaneously and start and end at Pioneer Park Parking Lot (Park Ave.). Scenic course leads runners/walkers through Nevada City, to American Hill and out Old Downieville Hwy. There will be Food, Fun and Festivities for everyone after the event!
I feel blessed to have the opportunity to be able to teach families in the community how to use food and cooking as a means of performing a great community service.
Fighting Childhood Hunger
The fact of the matter is, every night one out of six children go to bed and wonder when their next meal will come. Many people don’t realize that hunger is a real problem in the United States. Statistics show that 12.4 million children go hungry. That’s one in six.
The biggest need in our community is financial support. We need the help of our community in joining together throughout Nevada County.
It’s a fantastic sense of accomplishment, knowing that we will make a difference to hungry children in our community. So join us in making a difference in the lives of so many, there is strength in numbers.
