Bake and Take Day

March 27 is Bake and Take Day!

"Bake and Take Day began in 1970 as a community service project of the Kansas Wheathearts in Sumner County. The Kansas Wheathearts, an auxiliary organization of the Kansas Association of Wheat Growers, set out to share baked goods with family members, friends, neighbors, and those in need, generating goodwill in the community. The idea of a community member sharing a favorite recipe with someone special became so successful that the Kansas Wheathearts created a national Bake and Take Day celebration in 1973." link

On March 27th, bake something with wheat in it and take it to a friend, neighbor, or person in need. I'm excited about this and think its such a fun idea. Bake and Take Day is sponsored by wheat commissions across the country.

-The Kansas Wheat Commission is partnering with Stafford County Flour Mills Co to offer a cash prize drawing to participants. You can enter using the form on their website.

-The North Dakota Wheat Commission is also sponsoring this event and offering some recipes to try.

On March 27th I am going to host a Mister Linky here. I'd love for you to join us for Bake and Take Day and post about it on your blog. Feel free to share your recipe, photos, who you took the baked goods to and more! Come back here on March 27th and link up. One lucky participant will win a great book on bread baking and another will win an great little ebook What To Do With Your Kids In the Kitchen. Thank you to our sponsors, The Urban Homemaker and Heavenly Homemakers. For now, grab my button and help spread the word about this event.

Leave a comment and let me know if you plan to participate. I'm excited to see what everyone does. This would be a perfect time to try baking bread if you haven't yet, although anything with wheat in it counts. Do you have a favorite recipe you use for giving food gifts?

One Little Word She Knew


  1. Thanks for letting me know about this, Christy! :) Homemade wheat bread is one of my favorite foods to give to folks as a gift... not only because it's affordable and fairly easy to make, but because many people LOVE homemade bread but don't take the time to make it themselves (or haven't had success with bread baking)! :)

  2. What a great idea! We love baking treats for our neighbors and friends. :)

  3. What a great project! I have to remember to put this on my calendar.

  4. Thanks for the information! This sounds great.

  5. Your idea is one of my great posts of the week:
