We had the great pleasure to donate to some exceptional organizations for the month of February.  Our biggest donation causes were Animals, Children, and Health.  Last month’s donations amounted to over $500!

We also donated to City of Hope and First Book.

Thank you to all our customers that make these donations possible!  Let’s hope March is just as good!

Over that past 5 years, we have donated over $50,000 to over 250 nonprofits, and it’s all thanks to the generosity of our amazing customers.

Baking for Good spent last weekend at the Youth Trade Fair Conference in New Bedford, Massachusetts, where we spoke with Whole Foods Market representatives about our products.  We learned so much and had a blast meeting all our fellow young entrepreneurs.

Check out some of the friends we made who are also Youth Trade Certified and attended the event with us:
