Mission: Cakes on Wheels is a 501(c)(3) Nonprofit Organization based in Minneapolis, MN that bakes and delivers birthday cakes for kids in need. We believe that every kid is special and deserves to have a cake on his or her Birthday! When parents can’t afford to do so, we bake a cake from scratch and we deliver it to their home so they can have a candle to blow and a chance to make a wish. We use all natural, organic ingredients and make not only a delicious cake but also one that is as nutritious as possible.
Results: We have baked and delivered over 100 cakes this last year to children in need. We look forward to expanding our reach in 2013!
Target demographics: Low-income/At-risk families with children ages 1-18 in the Minneapolis-St.Paul metro area
Urban Ventures has had to priviledge to work with Cake on Wheels over the last year, as Veronica has provided birthday cakes for our youth participant of our low-income families. It has been a blessing to know that a simple cake is bringing together our families and allowing our youth to know someone cares about them and wants to celebrate their BIRTH! Veronica has always been super flexible, understanding, and great to work with. Since we serve a diverse community, it is extremely helpful that she has been able to communicate in English & Spanish. WE LOVE CAKE ON WHEELS! Thank you!
What an amazing organization- they made the day of many of our children who would not have gotten a birthday cake- They brought the cake right to the home and put smiles on many faces-Veronica is awesome and this organization is making an impact on many!!!
