Hunger: An American Issue

Solution: Last year Great American Bake Sale funds helped feed 2.1 million children through summer and afterschool food programs. Host a Great American Bake Sale. Sign-up now.
Why Support Great American Bake Sale?
100% of the funds you raise help feed kids.
Funds you raise from your local bake sale stay local, supporting afterschool and summer feeding programs in your community food programs that hundreds and thousands of kids depend on.
You can host a bake sale based on your schedule and in your community. You don’t have to run a marathon or make a large donation to make a huge difference!
If you don't want to bake, you can still get involved by holding other activities. This year, participants have held BBQs and invited friends. Others connected with their local 4-H club, baked treats for pets and sold those. The possibilities are endless.
