60 Seattle bloggers turn passion into compassion

Will Bake for Food
Yesterday I ran into Lisa of Gluten Free Foodies, and she reminded me that this Saturday is the big “Will Bake for Food” event. Lisa, along with 60 other Seattle food bloggers, is creating sweet treats for a giant bake sale benefitting hunger relief organization Northwest Harvest.

For each can of food that you bring, you will receive tickets to spend on baked goods, locally roasted coffee and Skagit Valley apple cider. Check out this list to see which items Northwest Harvest needs most. Extra tickets will be given for donations of diapers, baby formula and gluten-free foods. (Psst! Lisa told me gluten-free pasta is on sale at Trader Joe’s.)

The event will also feature a special raffle with awesome prizes, and blogger, chef and all around nice guy, Eric Rivera, is hiding a golden ticket inside one of his chocolate bars that will be good for a dinner for two cooked by Eric himself.

“Will Bake for Food” will take place Saturday, November 20 at University Congregational Church, Ostrander Hall, 4515 16th Ave. NE, Seattle, WA 98105, from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. (or whenever they run out of treats!)

Sneak peek: International Food Blogger Conference goody bags

I’m volunteering for the International Food Blogger Conference that is taking place this weekend in Seattle, and yesterday my task was to break down the many cardboard boxes that held the loads of swag that will be handed out to conference attendees.

I saw a tweet that said last year’s goody bags weighed about 30 pounds. I couldn’t believe that until I had to move the bags for this year’s conference. I don’t think they’re 30 pounds, but they pretty hefty and definitely require some serious upper body strength.

Goody bags for 2010 International Food Blogger Conference in Seattle

Here’s a look inside:

Among other things, the goody bags include gadgets (microplaner, citrus reamer, round ice cube maker), food (salami, spices) and other random items ranging from a flower cupcake pan to a happy face spatula.
