Bake birthday cakes for foster children/at risk youth in San Mateo County, California

Save to Favorites

Cake4Kids

Has the thought of a child without a birthday cake ever crossed your mind?

If you're like most people, it hasn't and you are not alone. Cake4Kids helps foster kids and at-risk youth feel special at least one day a year. We bake and deliver free birthday cakes to foster care and at-risk youth, who wouldn't otherwise have a birthday celebration.

We urgently need bakers in San Mateo, who are willing to bake and deliver cakes for children in their community.

Please note we are only in Northern California so only need volunteers in that region.

Make a difference in a child's life - one birthday cake at a time!

Mission Statement

What We Do: We deliver smiles to underserved youth, one birthday cake at a time. Our volunteer bakers, like you, bake and deliver homemade custom birthday cakes, cupcakes and cookies for those who are in foster care, are victims of violence or human trafficking, are homeless or are living at the povery line. We hope this seemingly simple gift gives the youth joy and helps to build their self-esteem. Who We Are: Cake4Kids is a Bay Area-based 501c3 that was started in 2010 and provides free custom birthday cakes, cupcakes or cookies to underserved children. What began as the grassroots effort of our founder and some friends delivering cakes to a few foster children in Santa Clara county, has grown into a full-fledged nonprofit that serves at-risk youth in 10 counties California and has provided over 13,000 cakes. Communities we serve: Alameda county, Contra Costa county, Fresno county, Marin county, Napa county, Sacramento county, San Diego county, San Francisco county, San Mateo county, Santa Clara county
