Sunday (October 25) is your chance to get some sweet treats for yourself and help end childhood hunger at the same time. That’s because it’s the return of the Redlands Bake Sale for No Kid Hungry.
This year, there will be a change versus previous outings. Instead of a separate event held in the spring, the organizers have joined with the Downtown Redlands Art Walk.
The event is set for noon to 6 p.m. at various businesses in the downtown area.
The bake sale will be held along Fifth Street, between Redlands Boulevard and State Street, adjacent to Ed Hales Park, the site of previous events.
Besides the goodies, the ever-popular prize wheel will make its return. This year’s prize wheel includes gift cards from Rok N Fondue, Augie’s Coffee, Bricks and Birch, Crepes of Wrath, Gourmet Pizza Shoppe, à la minute and Parliament Chocolate.
You’ll be able to purchase from several local bakers, including our friend Sara De Leeuw from My Imperfect Kitchen.
All proceeds from the bake sale will benefit No Kid Hungry, an organization dedicated to ending childhood hunger in America. The organizers have set a goal of $5,000, but if they reach $10,000, they’re hoping to keep $1,000 local with a donation to Redlands Unified School District Child Nutrition Services. Last year, they reached $9,000, which made them the number two-ranked team for fundraising.
