Great American Bake Sale
GenerationOn has a nation-wide bake sale team
and we want you on it! All you have to do is sign up below and have a bake sale!
What is it and how it works:
One in five kids in America struggles with hunger. Kids who struggle with hunger have a hard time learning in school and don't get the nutrition they need to grow up strong and healthy. GenerationOn kids and teens are teaming up to end this struggle by joining the Great American Bake Sale!
The Great American Bake Sale happens all across the country, all year long. Awesome youth and caring adults sign up to hold bake sales and send their profits to Share Our Strength. Share Our Strength uses that money to end childhood hunger.
You can schedule your bake sale whenever you want, but the National Challenge is April 20-22. It would be sweet if your bake sale won! The first 300 bake sale hosts to submit $275 or more from bake sales held on National Challenge Weekend will receive a Jay at Play’s Little Miss Muffin Pop N Flip™ toy.
More sweet stuff:
