BLUE MOUNTAIN LAKE - The Adirondack Museum is joining the national organization, Share Our Strength, to host a bake sale as part of the "Great American Bake Sale - Adirondack Style," Saturday, Aug. 7. Proceeds will be donated to Share Our Strength in an effort to fight childhood hunger in America.
Partnering with various Adirondack bakeries, the Adirondack Museum will offer tasty treats in the visitor center from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. They celebrate the pleasures of food and drink in the Adirondack Park this summer with a new exhibit - "Let's Eat! Adirondack Food Traditions."
"The exhibit provides the perfect opportunity to help fight childhood hunger and showcase great Adirondack baking at the same time," said marketing director Susan Dineen. "We want to do our part in making a difference."
North Country bakeries who have generously agreed to donate bake sale items include Caf Sarah, North Creek; Lake George Baking Company, Lake George; Misty Mountain Bakery Caf and the Pig II Deli, Indian Lake; Blues Berry Bakery, Lake Placid; The Homestead Bakery, Schroon Lake; Sherwood Forest Bakery, Wells; Lake Flour Bakery, Saranac Lake; and the Brick Oven Caf and The Market Place, Tupper Lake.
Share Our Strength's "Great American Bake Sale," presented by Domino(r) Sugar and C&H(r) Sugar, is a national effort that encourages Americans to host bake sales in their communities in support of a campaign to end childhood hunger in this country by 2015.
Since 2003, more than 1.7 million people have participated in the bake sales, raising nearly $6 million for the cause. For more information on the campaign and its partnering organizations, visit www.greatamericanbakesale.org or www.strength.org.
