Pumpkin Bread Bake
Our annual Pumpkin Bread Bake Sale is a favorite project of many of our youth volunteers! It is a great opportunity for kids to work hands on in a fun and delicious way that also supports Kids Helping Kids! All sales proceeds go directly to Kids Helping Kids and will help the organization grow in 2023!
November of 2001 was the beginning of the Annual Pumpkin Bread Bake Sale. Before KHK was even formed, Lexi Kelley would bake loaves of pumpkin bread at home and sell them for $10, with all proceeds going to help local children in need. Our first year, we made and sold 50 loaves! Because of our success, we recently partnered with a professional bakery to make thousands of loaves in their kitchen. Our team of kids now makes, bakes, packages and sells over 2,000 loaves every year, and this money helps fund all of our youth-led service projects. You can buy them for yourself or we can personally deliver them to families in need on your behalf. We depend on everyone that is part of KHK to sell and buy these delicious nut-free loaves.
2022 was a record year for bread bake sales. Our team sold 2,500 loaves of bread and over 600 loaves were delivered to families in need. Thank you to all the KHK youth volunteers and friends that sold the bread. In addition, a huge thank you to our partner, Grade A ShopRite, and their team for their generous help in making this happen. Thank you also to all the stores and businesses that let our kids sell the bread at their locations.
In order to streamline the check-out process and reduce crowding at the table, all orders for pumpkin bread must be placed online and paid for in advance. Your delicious pumpkin bread will be ready for pick up on Thursday, November 17th at ShopRite of Commerce Park in Stamford, CT. Please note: all orders must be picked by 8:00 p.m. on Thursday, November 17th.

Other Ways You Can Help
In addition to helping to sell bread, we have many opportunities for you to help prepare the bread. We expect that all kids who sign up to volunteer will also sell bread. We ask everyone to take a minimum of 10 loaves that night – whether you’ve pre-sold them or will be responsible for selling them over the weekend. We encourage you to take orders in advance – you will see how easy it is! Remind people that they can donate a loaf and our Cocoa Committee will deliver those donated loaves to people in need on Nov. 22nd.
Cocoa Committee: My name is Emma and I created the Cocoa Committee to really connect with the hundreds of people who visit Inspirica for food to make a Thanksgiving meal. While they wait in line we give them samples of our pumpkin bread, smiles, conversation and a cup of cocoa. After they’ve picked up their food, we give them a loaf of pumpkin bread and wish them a wonderful holiday. It feels so good to see the people’s faces light up! It is also gratifying to see exactly where all the donated loaves are going and all the smiles they create in one day.
