This month we are going to do things a little different for our Gluten Free Foodies Event. Instead of going somewhere to indulge ourselves, I am asking you to help support us in one of a few ways to help nourish and stock all of our local food banks. As you know we have been donating Gluten Free foods to eight local food banks in the Kitsap area the past few months for the Kitsap County Food Bank Coalition.
I am going to extend my support throughout Washington State by baking for my friend Jenny Richard’s event in Seattle. Jenny is a fellow food blogger, with the most beautiful blog called PurpleHouseDirt. Jenny Richards is organizing an event with another food blogger, Jenny Miller of Rainy Day Gal. The event is called “Will Bake For Food“. So, two food bloggers organizing a group of food bloggers and bakers from all over the Seattle area will be bringing their baked treats – regular and Gluten Free to help raise food and funds for Northwest Harvest of Seattle. Come meet some of your favorite food bloggers that you have been following in person.
I am going to make some Gluten Free Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins (pictured above) and Gluten Free Double Chocolate Cookies with Peppermint Crunch for Will Bake For Food . I already have a few Gluten Free Foodies excited to attend the event with me and hope you will join us.
There are a few ways that you can participate:
1. You can bake and bring your Gluten Free treats to the Will Bake For Food event in Seattle to give away to attendees that make donations. Please contact WBFF to sign up, look on the lower right side of the page to fill out the form. Please give them your info and what you would like to bake. Please be sure to tell them that you are a part of the Gluten Free Foodies Group that is baking to support the event.
2. You can attend the event, bring non-perishable foods – regular and Gluten Free, supplies like diapers or monetary donation. For your donation, you will get a ticket to exchange for your fresh baked treat. Added incentive – if you bring Gluten Free non-perishable donations you will get an extra ticket!
3. If you can not attend the event but would like to make a donation to the Kitsap County Food Bank Coalition please contact them directly for locations or feel free to contact me, firstname.lastname@example.org.
I look forward to seeing you at Will Bake For Food.
If you are planning on attending the event please send me an email so I can look out for you or would like to carpool from Kitsap County.
