On Saturday, November 13, a special event will help to raise funds for No Kid Hungry, a campaign to end childhood hunger by helping launch and improve programs that give all kids the healthy food they need to thrive.
Hosted by Duff Goldman of Food Network’s “Ace of Cakes,” the Thanksgiving “Bake-A-Thon for No Kid Hungry” is a 4-hour livestream fundraising event from 1-5 pm EST that brings together baking superstars from across the country to raise funds for No Kid Hungry. The event will offer hours of baking fun for attendees and will include special appearances from celebrity bakers and culinary influencers including, Chef Joanne Chang (Flour Bakery + Cafe), Gemma Stafford (Bigger Bolder Baking), Actress Tamera Mowry-Housley and Chef Bill Yosses (Hulu’s “Baker’s Dozen”), Amy Robach (Good Morning America) and more.
These bakers will demo their favorite baking recipes, share tips and techniques and answer questions from the live audience. Viewers can participate and donate during the event by tuning into No Kid Hungry’s Facebook livestream.
The “Bake-A-Thon for No Kid Hungry” is made possible by Presenting Sponsors, Wholesome Organic and Fair Trade sugars and Nellie’s Free Range Eggs.
“The holidays can be a stressful time for many families, especially in the wake of the pandemic,” says Diana Hovey, senior vice president of corporate partnerships at Share Our Strength, the organization behind the No Kid Hungry campaign. “Millions more kids face hunger today than before the pandemic hit, and hungry kids and their families will feel the impact of this crisis well into the future. That’s why we’re so grateful to our partners and supporters from across the country who are helping to make a difference for kids and their families this holiday season and every day. To end childhood hunger, it’s going to take all of us - Every meal, every donation, every supporter counts.”
