WASHINGTON, March 21, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today, Share Our Strength ® kicks off the 10 th anniversary of its Bake Sale for No Kid Hungryâ„¢ to help end childhood hunger in America. As a bid to raise major funding to help eradicate an issue that need not exist in America, the national nonprofit is encouraging people of all ages to host bake sales in their local communities. The goal for 2013 is to raise $600,000, which can help connect children in need with up to 6 million meals. Participants can sign up at

The program is presented by Domino ® Sugar, C&H ® Sugar and Duncan Hines ®. Since 2003, more than 1.4 million people have participated in Bake Sale for No Kid Hungry and have raised more than $9 million. All funds raised will help support Share Our Strength's No Kid Hungry ® campaign, which is ending childhood hunger in America by ensuring all children get the healthy food they need, every day.

"With one in five kids in America struggling with hunger, it's more important than ever to get involved and help connect children with the food they need," said Bake Sale for No Kid Hungry Director Amy Crowell. "Bake sales are one of the simplest and most enduring fundraising ideas around. Year after year, we see growing numbers of families, kids, businesses and organizations of every kind signing up to host sales. Every item sold does more than raise vital funding. It also raises awareness about childhood hunger in America and creates new and enduring advocates."

For those rising to the bake sale challenge, the online Bakers' Resources provides tools and tips to make events successful and fun. Bakers will find planning checklists, templates for flyers, location and pricing advice, photography tips, how to host a virtual bake sale tips and more.
