We're hosting a Vegan Bake Sale at Countryside Unitarian Church! I'm extremely proud of how successful our bake sales have been so far and how much we've been able to donate to Mercy for Animals, HEART, Save-A-Pet, Creatively Caring, and Have A Heart Farm. For this bake sale we will be raising funds for Wedrose Acres Animal Sanctuary in Gridley, Il. Wedrose is a non-profit animal sanctuary and wetland environment for wildlife and farm animals. They support the prevention of cruelty to all animals. Their residents include dogs, cats, alpacas, llamas, pigs, geese, a turkey, a cow, donkeys, horses, and many goats! https://www.facebook.com/wedroseacres
If you would like to donate a baked good, you can drop it off by 9:30am at Countryside, or arrange a drop-off at my house in Mundelein. Can't bake but want to enjoy the sweets? Come join us and purchase some yummy baked goods. (And don't forget to bring a container so you can take lots home with you!)
If you're not familiar with vegan baking, check your local library or bookstore to see what cookbooks they offer. Vegan baking does not include dairy (butter, milk, cream cheese, etc.), eggs, or honey. There are wonderful products out there such as Earth Balance, flaxseed, applesauce, and Ener-G Egg Replacer you can use instead. Here's some helpful info from Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale.
When you rsvp, please state whether you are baking, attending, etc. We'll also need a few volunteers to help man the tables. If you're baking something, you can put it on a platter with your name on the bottom and we'll get it back to you. We'll also bring a few platters you can use. Don't worry about pricing, we'll take care of that.
Hope to see you there!
