It Only Gets Better & Better

Get In The "KNOW"
Allow me to divert your attention to THIS BLOG POST written by Jeffrey Wood from Tyson Foods.  That's right folks this little cookie lady is a Tyson Foods Hunger All-Star and all of us here at Cookie Central are thrilled!

Since 2000 Tyson Foods has been involved with the fight against hunger.  They are a proud supporter of Share Our Strength, Lift Up America, Feeding America, and Food Research and Action Center. They strive to educate people across our nation about hunger in their communities and motivate them to get involved in hunger relief with their newly released KNOW Hunger campaign.  Over the course of just more than a decade, they have donated more than 78 million pounds of protein, "enough protein to have served one meal to every American citizen".  I'll break for a moment to give you all time to stand and applaud.

One Last Run

With a little luck -and quite a bit of strong-arming- we have snatched up 2 tickets to The Patriots game for November 21st, leaving me incredibly happy to announce our Great American Bake Sale at Gillette Stadium is back ON baby!   

PLEASE NOTE: We will no longer be in P2.  We will be rolling in style and will be parking in the lot where the.....wait for it..... RVs park (ha ha).  I would like to refrain from making any less than politically correct statements, but do want to throw out there - if anyone local has a couple of pink plastic flamingos and a blow-up kiddie pool we can borrow, I will be eternally grateful.  We will also be experimenting with a suggestion we came across on The Bake Sale Neighborhood.  FREE COOKIES.  That's right, we will be giving it all away for the doughnut (no pun intended), with donations graciously accepted of course.  We will also be bringing our No Kid Hungry swag to the seats, so keep an eye out for us behind the goalpost in the north end zone.  GO PATS
We're Jumping Ship

No, I'm just kidding.  The hubby and I are, however, hopping on the committee for Taste of the Nation Boston 2012!  Curious who the big dog is? Why, non other than Eve Lee who hosts one of the nations most successful Great American Bake Sales, was nominated for the GABS Community Leadership Award (sorry Eve, better luck next year :P) and has been volunteering for Taste of the Nation for several years now.  I welcome you all to follow along as I tweet the bag out of this bad Larry (as my husband would so eloquently put it).

Taste of the Nation is one of Share Our Strength's 5 campaigns.  This culinary benefit designed to raise awareness and funds for the fight against childhood hunger is THE go-to place for food lovers!  Taste events are hosted all across the country and you can check to see if there's one near you HERE.
