13 of San Diego’s culinary chefs will provide sweet and savory treats perfect to satisfy weekend cravings during the inaugural Chef­-Driven Bake Sale in support of No Kid Hungry, an organization that connects kids in need with nutritious food and teaches their families how to cook healthy, affordable meals. The bake sale will be an unique way to raise awareness and donations in support of national anti­-hunger.

The event will take place at LOUNGEsix, located inside Hotel Solamar, on Sunday, April 17, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. The community gathering is presented by Bake Me Some Love, a newly­ launched project by local food writer Erin Jackson, that celebrates baked goods (and the people who make them) in San Diego and beyond, through photo sharing and special events. Jackson will also be hosting the event. You might know some of her work from DiningOut Magazine, Thrillist and Zagat.
