“We are excited to partner with the Foodbank again, especially after visiting the facility this winter to see how the money we raised would be used,” said Cathy Danh, author of Gastronomy and founder of Eat My Blog. “It was an eye-opening experience for all of us on the planning committee, and we left that day eager to make an even greater impact this time around.”
“After raising $3,000 last December, we are thrilled to be hosting another bake sale benefiting such an important cause,” said Diana Hossfeld, author of Diana Takes a Bite and a member of the Eat My Blog organizing committee. “Treats that sold out within the first hour last time around, including bacon brownies and chocolate whoopie pies, will be making a second appearance. There will also be plenty of intriguing debuts including Momofuku’s Crack Pie from the Los Angeles Times’ Daily Dish and Chocolate Guinness Cupcakes with Bacon Cream Cheese Frosting from Pat Sapperstein of Eating LA.”
