Tori Tsu laughs as colleague Morgan Parker vows that her baked goodies will outsell Tori’s.

At OpenTable, we are avid supporters of Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign. As a company of serious foodies, one of our favorite opportunities to join the fight against childhood hunger is by hosting an annual bake sale at our corporate offices in San Francisco. Once again, our staffers created dozens of tempting confections — and then quickly bought and ate them all up. All together, OpenTable raised $1,247! Every cent will go directly to No Kid Hungry’s efforts to connect hungry children with healthy meals.

The Bake Sale for No Kid Hungry, presented by Domino® Sugar, C&H® Sugar, Duncan Hines®and Kmart® , is a national fundraising initiative that encourages people to host bake sales in their communities to help end childhood hunger. Click here to learn how you, as an individual, or your company can get involved and help No Kid Hungry end childhood hunger in America.
