Remember when your mom demanded that you finish your food because children across the world were starving? She was right. More than 16 million kids in this country alone are going hungry right now. That's why now, more than ever, we have to come together and help our nation's children. Join me and my partners Kmart, Shop Your Way, Hasbro, Domino Sugar, C&H Sugar, Duncan Hines and PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese at the World's Largest Bake Sale on Wed. May 1, 2013 in Vanderbilt Hall at Grand Central Station in NYC.
Let's beat our own Guinness World Record! With your help, and the support of my co-chairs Mario Batali, Emeril Lagasse, Bobby Flay, Martha Stewart, Guy Fieri, Buddy Valastro, Ty Pennington, Wendy Williams, Rosanna Scotto and Dylan Lauren we plan to raise more awareness and more funds than ever... all while enjoying delicious desserts! We have 35 of the best restaurants and bakeries in the area crafting the most irresistible cookies, cakes and cupcakes. Every treat is $5 and every cent goes to Bake Sale for No Kid Hungry and Food Bank For New York City. If you were ever looking for a good reason to eat dessert, and finish it, here it is!
It's our duty, in this land of plenty, to make childhood hunger a thing of the past. Together, we can make a difference. And we will.
