Baking To End Childhood Hunger

El Centro, California (NAPSI) - One in five children in America struggle with hunger a  problem that stops them from reaching their full potential.

In fact,  according to Share Our Strength, children who regularly struggle with hunger  are less likely to graduate from high school and college.

To help, TV personality and expert baker Duff Goldman is teaming up with  PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese to offer tips on how Americans can host a  successful bake sale to help end childhood hunger through his biggest passion—baking.

“Everyone can help connect children to the meals they desperately  need by hosting your own bake sale as a fun and delicious fundraising  opportunity,” says Goldman. “However big or small your bake sale,  the funds you raise can help to end childhood hunger and assist kids in  reaching their full potential.”

To host a bake sale for the cause, register at bake.nokidhungry.org,  select some of your favorite recipes and get baking. By registering with No  Kid Hungry, fundraisers will receive a bake sale tool kit featuring coupons  and products to help host a successful bake sale, such as a coupon and  cookbook from PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese.

Goldman’s Top Tips for  Hosting a Successful Bake Sale  

• Pick Your Spot: Choose  a high-traffic location such as a sporting event, community center or park to  get maximum foot traffic and visibility. Just be sure to ask your local  venues for permission.

• Make More Dough: Have a  donation jar at your table to bring in extra money. You’ll be  pleasantly surprised at how many people purchase items and also drop cash in  the jar.

• Make ‘em Mini: In  addition to full-sized pies and cakes, create mini versions of your favorite  desserts. Try baking your favorite cheesecake or pie recipe in muffin tins.

• Remember to Refresh: Offer  beverages, like lemonade or iced tea, in addition to your baked goods to help  wash down the tasty treats.
