Bakesale for Japan comes to Toronto

People who know their way around an oven are being urged to dust off their extra bakeware if they’ve been put away in storage units as Torontonians are being called upon to assist thousands of families in need.

The program is called “Bakesale for Japan,” which was originally organized by a San Francisco-area baker. According to its website, the bake sale got its start after California-area bakers were able to raise $23,000 for survivors of the earthquake in Haiti.

Several bakeries across California are participating in the Bakesale for Japan, which will be held April 2, but bakeries across the country are also participating in locations like Portland, Boston and Philadelphia.

But the sale is also coming to the Greater Toronto area and the Toronto Star reports that several bakeries will participate on April 2 and April 10.

”My heart broke a little each time I saw the images of death and destruction, of kids being scanned for signs of radiation, of rescue workers searching for the bodies of victims, of survivors trying desperately to find their loved ones,” Heena Punwani told the Star. Punwani is organizing the Toronto effort.

Other Toronto bakeries interested in participating are urged to visit the website. All moneys raised will go to the Red Cross.
