Eat a Cookie, Help a Starving Kid

Not like you need an excuse to go to Scoops, the most unique ice cream shop in all of Los Angeles.

But here's another good reason to visit the East Hollywood shop on Saturday, Aug. 18: The No Cookie Left Behind bakesale.

The event is part of Share Our Strength's "Great American Bake Sale," which encourages people to hold sales in their community, with proceeds going toward fighting childhood hunger here in the U.S.

Cold hearted, and don't care about no stinking starving kids? How about this: The baked goodies set to go on sale sound pretty awesome: maple vanilla granola, fleur de sel caramel cake, pumpkin cupcakes, vegan cupcakes, lemon bars, Mexican chocolate rice crispie treats, Persian baklava, Barefoot Contessa coconut macaroons, and more. Live music will also be there.

The bake sale will take place that day from noon to 4. If you haven't been to Scoops -- and really, what's wrong with you?! -- it's at at 712 Heliotrope Ave., just north of Melrose, between Normandie and Vermont.

Thanks to organizer Tannaz for filling us in on this delicious event.
