What is the Birthday Cakes 4 Free Maryland?

Birthday Cakes 4 Free Maryland (BC4F) is a nonprofit organization that bakes, decorates, and delivers free birthday cakes to financially and socially disadvantaged children and seniors. Our mission is to provide joy to our cake recipients to help them feel special and valued by their community. We hope to create special memories for children and seniors. BC4F bakes 100+ birthday cakes a month and distributes them to 12 charities in Maryland, Virginia, and the DC metropolitan area. BC4F is run by a student Executive Board (see below). Applications for the upcoming school year typically open in May. Additionally, BC4F provides SSL hours to MCPS students.
