Foodie Bloggers Unite to End Childhood Hunger

Durham has one of the most celebrated food scenes in the country, and that doesn't happen by accident.  The food scene in this creative class mecca is filled with the sort of folks that understand a larger context of food as a part of culture, and that culture is built on community.  Community is what they are all about, and what they are trying to help (this time) with an upcoming  bake sale.

Durham's foodie bloggers will join a Triangle wide effort to end childhood hunger. Johanna Kramer of Durhamfoodie Blog and Matt Lardie of Green Eats Blog will host the Food Blogger Bake Sale as part of the Great American Bake Sale, a benefit for Share our Strength. The Food Blogger Bake Sale will unite 20 of the Triangle’s food bloggers in The Art Market at Vega Metals near Durham Farmers’ Market. Each participating blogger will bake a savory or sweet dish that will be available for sale to the public.

Durham is always eager to pitch in and help those in need as is evidenced time and time again with efforts to assist those in need hither and yon, and right in Durham, too.  The upcoming Food Blogger Bake Sale is set to coincide with Durham Farmers' Market's hours on Saturday, May 14 from 10am-Noon. All money generated will be donated back to Share our Strength.
