Bake Sales. We’ve all done them, mostly in school, I know I was the queen of cupcakes for student council. We baked, and brought in sugary delights to make a difference for whatever project we were taking on, and somehow we always seemed to raise enough money to make a difference.
So imagine what would happen if bakers across the states, country and even continent all decided to host a bake sale to help a country across the world that’s been devastated by natural disaster. On Saturday, April 2nd there will be a simultaneous national bakesale hosted at bakeries, restaurants, and other businesses featuring baked goods made by some of the most talented professional and amateur bakers across North America. Bakesale for Japan is organized by Samin Nosrat, a California Chef, who proved she’s got talent for corralling community philanthropy when she coordinated a Bay area bake sale that raised $23,000 for Haiti earthquake relief last winter.
In Dayton, Boosalis Baking & Cafe will donate 20% of sales on April 2, 2011. f you call ahead and place your order by close of day Thursday March 31st. Chef/Owner Matt Boosalis says he’ll have your favorite scones, croissant, brownies or bread baked fresh Saturday morning, bagged and waiting for your pick-up. Learn more about Matt from his 10?’s interview on DaytonMostMetro.com in Sept 2009.
All proceeds will go to Peace Winds Japan, the fund devoted to streamlining disaster response plans in Asia. If you’re looking to bake or know of a spot that could spare a table, contact Samin and get baking, America. If you know of other bakeries participating, let us know in the comments section below.
