Macie hosted a bake sale at an ‘Art in the Park’ vendor fair, which was an event to help support small businesses thrive through the pandemic and get local schools involved by hosting an art contest. The entire event was hosted safely outside and was socially distanced.
Macie ended up having four friends participate by baking and hosting the bake sale with her in the park. “I like asking my friends to help bake to get others involved in giving back. I always try to get as many people involved as possible.”
Macie shared some tips for a successful bake sale. For her social media was essential.
“You want everyone to know you’re having a bake and how they can support it. It is best to cut or bake items in a larger size and individually wrap them. People like items that are familiar to them, so you don’t need to bake fancy items, and items that are easy to pick up and eat or carry with them.”
She also expressed her enthusiasm for baking and helping hungry kids.
“The best part about hosting a bake sale is seeing the difference you get to make! Counting your profits at the end of the day knowing your hard work paid off. I can’t imagine what it must feel like to not have food to eat. I get hangry when I miss a snack. Kids need food to do good at school and activities. This is why I bake!”
