Bake Bread – Give Dough – Feed Africa!

The Worldwide Blogger Bake Off launched on October 15, 2008 with the aim of raising $1 million dollars for hunger relief in Africa.

The Bake Off is the idea of Breadline Africa. The money raised will be used to support grass roots community projects aimed at ending poverty and hunger in Africa. Breadline Africa will be placing container kitchens, vegetable gardens and more in poor communities, as well as sending emergency food relief to places where it is needed and helping poor communities to help themselves.

How does it work?

There are plenty of ways to take part. You can bake bread, donate or simply spread the word.
  • You could bake a magnificent loaf of bread, take pictures and write about your culinary masterpiece in your blog.
  • Download the Bake Off widget and tag your 5 favourite bloggers to do the same.
  • Hold a local bake sale to raise funds for the campaign
  • Submit your favourite bread recipe and get everyone you know to vote for it - the recipe with the most votes wins $250 Amazon Vouchers
If you spearhead the most donations you win the honour of having a container kitchen named after you - and $500 of Amazon Vouchers.

So get baking already!!
