Let's beat hunger...with cake!

Big Bake is a nationwide event to get you and your friends baking to (self) raise lots of money for the world’s very poorest people.

Arrange a Big Bake sale in your workplace, church, school or front room, and we will give you plenty of help to make it all happen.

Sign up today to get your free pack, it’s full of posters, stickers, and top tips from fellow bakers – in short, everything you need to host a great Big Bake event.

    Bake...for Sylvia

    Sylvia has been robbed by hunger. The rains in Malawi are unpredictable, and the changing climate makes every harvest more uncertain.

    For Sylvia, this means life is a struggle just to keep her four children alive. As she looks at the one bag of maize she has left, she sighs, ‘It’s just a matter of surviving.’

    But it doesn’t have to be this way. Just an hour away Polly has had two years of abundant harvests. Polly received training, which taught her how to farm the barren, dry land. ‘My family used to struggle,’ explains Polly.

    ‘But after gaining the knowledge and skills to make my own fertiliser, we managed to harvest 16 bags in the first year.’ This surplus has enabled her to buy livestock and set up a business – her life has been transformed.

    The money you raise through Big Bake could give families like Sylvia’s the same training, better harvests and open up opportunities for them.
