FBB interviewed on the Big Vision Podcast

A little while ago, we were approached by an amazing woman name Britt Bravo who makes her living by helping “facilitate people having fun and doing good while realizing their big vision for a better world.” Seriously. She had heard about Fat Bottom Bakery and the East Bay Vegan Bakesale, and wanted to get the inside scoop on our baking, our ethics, and the ways we like to have fun and do good. So she came to our house, set up her recording equipment, and interviewed us!
And now it’s up on the internet for all to enjoy! You can hear our interview right here on the Big Vision Podcast
Sometime probably next week, the full transcript of the interview will be posted on Britt’s blog Have Fun Do Good. I don’t know if you have any experience with transcribing, but reading the way people actually talk… well, I just hope we’re half as articulate as we assume we are in the day-to-day, or else looking at it on paper (blog?) is going to be pretty cringeworthy for the two of us. 
That said, I’m sure it’s great! We have tons of great things to say, and you’ll love listening to or reading them! Or both!
And in the meantime, before the transcript is up, check out all the other rad and inspiring things over at Have Fun Do Good!

Bakesale flier!

Oh man, everyone look at our amazing flier, put together by our friends Mel and Shane!

If you want a bigger version to print out or post, email us and we’ll pass it along! Likewise, there is a smaller version (as in, a slightly different, slightly less detailed version) which we’d also be happy to give you if you have a use! Email ebveganbakesale@gmail.com.

The East Bay Vegan Bakesale returns!

It’s that time again– the second East Bay Vegan Bakesale is coming, and we need YOUR help! We’ll be doing our thing in just a few weeks, Saturday, March 20th from 11am to 4pm in front of Issues! The same place we held the last bakesale, Issues is at 20 Glen Ave off of Piedmont in Oakland.

We’re excited to announce that this bakesale’s proceeds will be donated 50/50 to Animal Place sanctuary in Vacaville (soon to be Grass Valley!), and Haiti Emergency Relief Fund (HERF), an organization based right here in the East Bay helping to fund crucial relief work in Haiti. Be sure to check out the links for more info on both of the beneficiaries!

Now let’s get right down to it: what do we want from you? Well, aside from spreading the word wherever you can (please do!), we need volunteers to help us run the tables at the sale, and as many bakers to donate their delicious vegan treats as possible! If you can do either (or both!) please get in touch ASAP! You can email us at ebveganbakesale@gmail.com. For more updates, you can also follow us on Twitter!

We’ll be there, of course, and have just gotten word from crowd-favorites Cinnaholic that they’re on board too! And as usual, we expect lots (should I say shitloads?) of other amazing local bakers too! Please spread the word, help out, bake, volunteer and eat!

P.S. Like our new logo? If you think it looks familiar, you’re right.
