Food Network Star Sandra Lee stopped by Daily Shot to chat about her 25th cookbook, Every Dish Delivers, and her efforts to fight childhood hunger by throwing the world’s largest bake sale. It’s the second time she’s throwing the event, and 100% of the proceeds go to the No Kid Hungry campaign.
While the massive event takes place this Wednesday in New York City, Sandra says it’s part of a year-long plan to throw bake sales all over the country to raise awareness of the more than 16 million children struggling with hunger nationwide.
Sandra told Ali that her dedication to this particular cause stems from a childhood spent on welfare and food stamps. “I was one of those kids who was standing in line…like, ‘I’m nobody, I got food stamps,’ and I felt so awful and embarrassed.”
Now, celebs such as Mario Batali, Emeril Lagasse, Wendy Williams, and Ty Pennington are joining her in her annual fundraiser, which she hopes will inspire others to throw bake sales of their own.
As for Sandra’s 25th book, it may be her last for awhile. To find out why, check out the video!
