Now Serving Bake Sale for Australia Bushfire Relief
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
Few things make us feel better than donating to a great cause. One of the top exceptions? Oh, just eating cookies, pies and cakes from around 50 of the greatest pastry chefs and restaurants in Los Angeles—and doing it for a great cause.
This Sunday, you can find the best of all possible worlds at the community-building cookbook shop Now Serving in Chinatown, because there's a bake sale with a jaw-droppingly good lineup and they're all selling treats to benefit those impacted by Australia's horrific bushfires.
From 11am to 2pm or until they sell out (and we've got a good feeling they might), Now Serving's Friends of the Shop Bake Sale is raising funds for the CFS Foundation, which aids volunteer firefighters harmed in duty, and for OzHarvest, a roving service that provides food for those in need. One hundred percent of the proceeds will be donated to these organizations, which is all the more reason to go to town on treats baked by some of the biggest bakeries, food writers and all-star chefs in town.
Vendors include Bub and Grandma's, Fat & Flour's Nicole Rucker, Rustic Canyon Group's Jeremy Fox, République's Margarita Manzke, Proof Bakery, Nightshade's Mei Lin, Lucques Group's Shannon Swindle, Sqirl's Cathy Flores, Isamade's Isa Fabro, Felix's Evan Funke, Mélisse and Openaire's Josiah Citrin, Spago's Della Gossett and even the Los Angeles Times recipe section.
Most items will be priced at around $5, and cash is encouraged. Want the real pro move? BYOBag and tupperware to load up, and be sure to enter Far East Plaza from the Hill Street side, so you'll be closer to Now Serving.
