The Guardian asks "is food the future of philanthropy?" as some UK charities show that nothing says loving like something from the oven.
"The charity bake sale, humble stalwart of the fundraising effort, has spread its wings. Bake-offs, tarts, dinner parties, cups of coffee, unused kitchens and surplus groceries: food-based philanthropy appears to be flourishing. Free Cakes UK, a service that matches keen amateur bakers with families struggling to provide a child's birthday cake, attests to the boom. The network has recently delivered its 1,000th cake to a needy child." -- Sue Quinn, the Guardian.co.uk
