Cooking up community spirit with Rochester’s Great American Bake Sale

We’re rolling it, patting it and marking it with a “B” for Bake Sale! Back by popular demand, Rochester’s 3rd Annual Great American Bake Sale will be held on Saturday, August 17, from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at the upper lot of the Downtown Rochester Farmers’ Market.

PrintThis community-wide bake sale will raise funds for the Rochester Regional Service Collaboration which benefits Blessings in a Backpack, Community Kitchen and the Rochester Area Neighborhood House. The Rochester Regional Service Collaboration was launched by Rochester area youth, nonprofit leaders and individuals dedicated to see those in need assisted and thriving in the community.

“More than 17 million kids in America are at risk of hunger,” said Stephanie Hellebuyck, events coordinator of the Rochester Downtown Development Authority. “Some of these kids live right in our community, so it’s important to support the wonderful organizations that help them. Together, we can make a difference in our community.”

Those interested in donating baked goods to Rochester’s Great American Bake Sale should visit to download a donation form or submit their donation electronically. And those with a sweet tooth should attend the event on August 17!
