Austin Bakes to host another citywide bake sale this weekend

For the second time in a month, the volunteer bakers behind Austin Bakes are hosting a citywide bake sale to raise money for disaster relief.

In September, they raised more than $20,000 for hurricane relief efforts, but then the California wildfires hit, an earthquake struck Mexico and people in Puerto Rico continued to face hurricane-related hardships.

The organizers decided it was time for another fundraiser.

From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, you’ll find baked goods at five locations around Austin:

  • Whole Foods Market Lamar | 525 N Lamar Blvd. Austin, TX 78703
