Please join the North Jersey editors of Jersey Bites this Saturday, May 14, as they take a bite out of childhood hunger!
The Second Annual Food Blogger Bake Sale, created by Gaby of What’s Gaby Cooking? Blog, will be happening at locations across the country, and Jersey Bites is proud to be representing the NJ team, hosted by Sussex County Editor Amanda from Our Italian Kitchen. We’ll be set up at Heaven Hill Farm and Garden Center, located at 451 New Jersey Rt. 94 in Vernon, NJ from 10:00 am – 4:00pm. Click here for a google map link.
While you enjoy a variety of cookies and cupcakes, you’ll also be helping to support No Kid Hungry, Share Our Strength’s campaign to end childhood hunger in America by 2015. Nearly one in four children in America struggle with hunger, adding up to more than 17 million kids nationwide. Lack of nutritious food in children impairs a child’s ability to concentrate and perform well in school, makes the child more likely to experience headaches, stomachaches, colds, ear infections and fatigue, and leads them to be sick more often, recover more slowly, and are more likely to be hospitalized.

We hope to see you at Heaven Hill Farm and Garden Center on Saturday and if you can’t join us, you can still support the cause by donating here. Just $25 helps feed one child three healthy meals every day for a month.
