Another passion of Baked. is giving back and improving not just the local community, but also the global one. With the world contracting due to globalization, our ever-increasing contact with other peoples inevitably brings forth both discrepancies and prejudice against those different from us. This only makes it more important if not necessary for us, as citizens of the world, to push for causes such as environmental sustainability, human rights, free education for all, international development, etc. We must educate ourselves before passing judgment. We are all part of the same global community, so we must all do our part to take good care of it. Along with setting up our own social service events, Baked. proudly supports and works with organizations on the following ever-expanding list (click on logo for more info):

Each year, its network provides food assistance to more than 25 million low-income people facing hunger in the United States, including more than 9 million children and nearly 3 million seniors.
