Over 80 home cooks & dozens of local businesses will be contributing baked goods at locations throughout Austin, with proceeds going to the Austin Disaster Relief Network.

All funds raised will go to the Austin Disaster Relief Network, to benefit survivors of the late October flooding that ravaged home in Austin & Pflugerville. Those who wish to make a gift in advance of the sale may do so at the Austin Bakes for Austin’s secure online giving page.

Austin Bakes on Facebook, following us on Twitter (@austinbakes), or by making a gift online.
Austin Bakes for Austin is being organized by the same team of food enthusiasts and bloggers who
presented Austin Bakes for Japan, Austin Bakes for Bastrop, and Austin Bakes for West. The group’s
citywide bake sales have raised over $45,000 for humanitarian relief since 2011.
The Austin Disaster Relief Network is nonprofit disaster relief and humanitarian aid organization
comprised of a network of over 110 churches in the Austin area. They are coordinating volunteer and support
teams to help over 500 families impacted by the recent floods, as well as providing financial support directly
to families in need.
