We love a good bake sale, don’t you?

Well, they do not get any better than Will Bake for Food.

Imagine a room full of baking bloggers who have donated their time, culinary talents, and tasty goodies in exchange for donations of food or cash to a local charity.

Donations of food or cash are exchanged at the door for tickets, which are then used to “buy” goods at all the various tables. Or, if you’re the gambling sort, raffle tickets can be purchased as well.

This year’s donation recipient is The Emergency Feeding Program of Seattle and King County. You can find a list of the items the Emergency Feeding Program needs most here (PDF).

This year’s bake sale of champions takes place on Saturday, November 12, at University Heights (5031 University Way NE), from 11AM-2PM.

Our haul from last year, long since consumed with gusto.

Last year’s event collected 1,903 pounds of food and $946 for Northwest Harvest. The 1,631 items sold by 54 bakers and 138 beverages (55 coffee, 83 cider) poured by 2 volunteers sold out in 90 minutes.

To see a sampling of this year’s bakers — which includes Molly Wizenberg of Orangette and Delancy, Cook Local of the Roosevelt neighborhood, and the secretary of the Ravenna-Bryant Community Association — visit the Bakers page of the Will Bake for Food website.
