Feeding America One Bake Sale at a time!

In Kids by savvysassymoms7 Comments


While I am beyond excited for my neighborhood rally this weekend I am trying not to let the Ice Cream and Glitter Tattoo’s cloud my vision of the true purpose and the goal of the event.  I am hosting an Ice Cream Social because I was shocked to learned that 1 in 4 children in America suffers from hunger and that Feeding America supplies food to more than 37 million Americans each year, including 14 million children.

“Hunger is a reality in America,
one that more children face every day.  Food is their
chance for a better tomorrow and a strong foundation for the future.”

Hosting a Neighborhood Rally is a also a great opportunity to get your children involved, heck have them decide and be apart of the planning.   Teaching my kids the importance of giving back, volunteering and donating time or money is something very important to me.  I can remeber my mom delivering “Meals of Wheels”  to the elderly when I was little, so clearly leading by example does have a positive impact!

My daughter is 5 and tonight we will be baking chocolate chip cookies with her best friend Abby and I have explained to her that the money she makes from selling these cookies at our event will provide food for children that do not have enough to eat.

So this weekend I am taking it to the streets of Pasadena –
Where the LA Food Bank began!!
Pasadena resident, Tony Collier, founded Los Angeles Regional Foodbank in 1973 at the Grandview Foundation.
From its beginning in a two-car garage, the Foodbank moved into a converted 2,600 square foot dry cleaning facility on Fair Oaks Avenue in Pasadena. In 1983,  it moved to a 10,000 square foot warehouse in El Monte.

To reflect its service to all areas of Los Angeles County, the organization changed its name to Los Angeles Regional Foodbank in 1986.  In 1989, Los Angeles Regional Foodbank moved to its present location: a 96,000 square foot facility specifically designed as a food bank.   lafoodbank.org
