(We have not been able to take a picture of the new board due to COVID-19)

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 underprivileged children and seniors. BC4F bakes 200+ birthday cakes a month and distributes them to 23 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.
