The program is great! When I give the family the bag they are so excited to see that they can make cookies together.
As an agency we always try to provide our families with something when they go into housing. Usually this is cleaning supplies or blankets. Being able to also give them the Bake Me Home bags gives us the chance to give them something fun and special as well.
The families enjoy the fresh baked cookies that Bake Me Home provides. They consistently are very appreciative and touched that your organization thinks of them during their time of need.
The moms that receive the tote bags are always touched, delighted and very pleased to receive this gift. They are genuinely surprised and kind of “taken aback” by this act of kindness. I observed a mom just today have this very reaction. And on her way out of our pantry she pulled the jar of cookie mix out of the tote bag and showed her kids. And she said “we get to bake cookies together” And the kids were jumping up and down with excitement.
“I’m going through a divorce and my kids and I have been struggling. We received this at a food pantry, thank you so much. It was just what we needed to do together, bake. Thank you, Emma and Amy.”
“I want to thank you- after I broke my back we never have money to buy extra stuff like cookies to make together and we had a blast!!! Thank you! Plus they tasted great!!!”
Dear Emma and Amy,
I want to thank you for the bakemehome cookie mix I recieved at the SEM food pantry. My twins love helping me bake and enjoy (as every toddler naturally does) eating the goodies. We have had it financially rough lately and this was a wonderful treat for my kids…..thank you very much for all that you do!

“I wanted to thank you for the donated package that I received at the food pantry today. Your jar with cookie ingredients was so cute! I loved your recipes and the kroger card. It was all so thoughtful! Baking cookies during the holidays is a family tradition. I can’t wait to get started making cookies with my daughter! I know she will like the mason jar of ingredients and the cook book that goes with it. I just wanted to say thanks on behalf of my family. Your kindness is appreciated. Have a great holiday season!”

“Thank you very much for the most delicious cookies! Our veterans loved them. We love your devotion to our veterans, and through them, our country.”
Got the cookies!! And they were almost gone in the first 48 hours. I think a few of the folks here substituted the cookies for dinner the first night that I had them.
Emma and Amy, thank you for sending us the cookies! You are right, it made me think of all the wonderful people back home. I really appreciate all that you do and the positive impacts you have on the lives you touch with your generosity. Have a wonderful day and thanks for your support to our deployed troops.
My unit is a support unit and sometimes we deliver supplies to soldiers that are holed up or in rural areas and I have taken your boxes to them and they are very happy to have homemade cookies. Thank you very much for the wonderful cookies, these cookies were by far the best cookies I have ever had during deployment. They are lucky to have a support unit where some infantry units do not. I am a driver and I would not trade jobs with them and do not envy them at all. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to give them something from home.
