National Bakery Day (Friday, September 27) is soon upon us, and retail bakeries across the country are preparing for the special celebration. One of those is Flour Bakery + Café, the famed Boston bakery led by former James Beard Outstanding Baker Joanne Chang.
To celebrate the occasion, Flour Bakery will showcase three ‘throwback’ products for the week, since the holiday falls at the same time as the original Flour location’s 19th birthday. Those products are low fat Dried Fruit Scones, Cornmeal Lime Cookies with Lime Glaze, and Milky Way Tarts.
Additionally, the bakery will continue its National Bakery Day tradition of selling mini cupcakes with homemade sprinkles. All of the proceeds from these cupcakes will benefit Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign.
The No Kid Hungry campaign works to end child hunger in America by ensuring all children get the healthy food they need, every day. It connects kids to effective nutrition programs like school breakfast and summer meals through a network made up of private citizens, government officials, business leaders, and others providing innovative hunger solutions in their communities.
