So far, there are four Texas groups signed up for 2011 Worldwide Vegan Bake Sales. Someone left a comment in the last bake sale post saying they were setting up a bake sale. Is yours listed below?
In El Paso, the Vegetarian Society of El Paso is hosting a sale at Sun Harvest on April 30. The sale will benefit the Animal Rescue League of El Paso. For more information about baking, volunteering, or attending the sale, see this Facebook page or contact Alison at alison99999 (at) hotmail (dot) com.
Also on April 30, in Houston the Vegan Society of Peace hosts a bake sale at Radical Eats Cafe. The money raised will benefit Food for Life Global (Japan disaster relief), Kinship Circle (animal disaster aid), and the Vegan Society of Peace’s upcoming VegFest Houston (more on that soon!). Details about the sale and volunteering can be found here.
The Dallas vegan bake sale at Beauty Bar will benefit Direct Relief International. This sale will also take place on April 30. Besides baked goods, there will be raffle prizes, which organizers promise will be “fabulous.” Volunteer bakers can email firstname.lastname@example.org. More information about the bake sale can be found at Dallas Vegan.
And finally, on May 1 from 8 AM to 9PM, a San Antonio bake sale will take place at Green Vegetarian, San Antonio’s first vegetarian restaurant. Procedes benefit SARA, the Society for Animal Rescue and Adoption, in Seguin. Volunteer bakes can email unlovedgrrl (at) aol (dot) com.
Recently, Austin vegans teamed up with the greater Austin food community to raise over $11,500 for AmeriCares Japan disaster relief. There were vegan baked goods at all five bake sale locations, and they were universally a hit.
