OpenTable Bakes to Support Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry Campaign!

As you know, we’re big supporters of Share Our Strength and Dine Out for No Kid Hungry, which runs through September 24, 2011. To take our commitment a step further, OpenTable held our first annual in-house bake sale! Our participation in the Great American Bake Sale was a complete success, with employees baking and buying to raise nearly $1,200! Every cent will go directly to Share Our Strength’s efforts to stamp out childhood hunger.

There were treats both sweet (cupcakes!) and savory (soft pretzels!), and, by the time the day was over, only crumbs remained.

Peep some pictures of our baked goods-for-good! Then, head over to Share Our Strength for help in running a bake sale at your workplace that will benefit No Kid Hungry! And, don’t forget to dine out to during Dine Out for No Kid Hungry!

More than 17 million children in America — almost one of four — struggle with hunger. With the support of thousands of restaurants, dozens of corporate partners and millions of consumers, Share Our Strength is changing that. “We are asking everyone—private citizens, businesses, policymakers and other nonprofits—to help us end childhood hunger in this country,” said Bill Shore, Founder of Share Our Strength.  “We continue to be amazed by the generosity and commitment of the restaurant industry and its customers. Last year, they raised more than $1.5 million through Dine Out For No Kid Hungry, a record high and twice what was raised the year before. Our goal is to involve as many restaurants and their customers as it takes to make No Kid Hungry a reality by 2015. I encourage everyone to dine out often at participating Dine Out For No Kid Hungry restaurants in September, then visit our web site, Strength.org, to learn what more they can do to make sure every child in America has access to the nutritious food they need.”
