Any purchase you make from the Faux Gourmet enables us to give back in a big way! Here are just a few of the great causes we support.
Philabundance - Driving hunger from our communities.
There are over 900,000 people at risk of hunger in the Delaware Valley. Philabundance was created in 1984 with the simple belief that no man, woman or child should go hungry. Nearly 30 years later, they are now the region’s largest hunger relief organization, implementing both emergency hunger relief and innovative, long-term strategies to strengthen the hunger safety net.
We host a "Faux Gourmet Feeds Kids" bake sale team each year to raise money for No Kid Hungry, an organization committed to ending childhood hunger in America. Just $1 connects a child in need to 10 meals, and this year we've raised over 3,000 meals. To get involved, visit www.nokidhungry.org
Convoy of Hope
We take cupcakes to the streets to bless communities in need! This year we gave out 600 cupcakes at our “Decorate Your Own Cupcake” station…complete with a gourmet toppings bar! Convoy of Hope is a faith based organization with a driving passion to feed the world through children's feeding initiatives, community outreaches, disaster response and partner resourcing.
