Anna Maria Island bake sale aims to end childhood hunger

Anna Maria Island, FL -- The goal of a bake sale is to quench the buyer's hunger.

But one is being held on Saturday, May 21 in Manatee County with the idea of ending hunger around the world.

9-year-old Piper Hansen is organizing a "Share Our Strength Great American Bake Sale."

It runs from 9:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. at the Anna Maria Island Community Center, located at 407 Magnolia Avenue.

All proceeds go to "Share Our Strength," a non-profit with a mission to end childhood hunger by 2015.

Hansen's goal is to raise at least $500 to pay for 12 low-income families to attend a six-week nutritious cooking course.
