Eat My Blog Bakesale raises over $3,700

Diana of Diana takes a Bite with the variety of treats on offer.
This past Saturday Los Angeles area bloggers joined forces to throw an old-fashioned bake sale to benefit the Los Angeles Regional Foodbank. Over $3,700 was raised to help feed the hungry in our community. This was the 3rd such event and participation was large, including Nastassia from the Manila Machine, Lindsay aka SquashBlossom (the Editor of LAist), Starry Kitchen, Diana from Diana Takes A Bite, Lesley Balla from Chow Balla and many others.

The event was held on the sidewalk in front of Tender Greens West Hollywood, which assisted in making the event run smoothly.  Over the course of the day dozens of bloggers stopped by Eat My Blog to support the event, whether by bringing treats or by buying some.  I lucked out and was able to purchase some Smoked Salt Toffee by SquashBlossom before they sold out.  Nguyen from Starry Kitchen (below) wore his signature Banana outfit, which added cheer on an overcast day.  As demand has been rising for food from local food pantries, the funds raised by Eat My Blog are needed more than ever.  If you were unable to attend or would like to learn more about the Los Angeles Regional Foodbank or would like to donate, please click here.
