Sweets of the Month

Do you love Sunflower Bakery treats, but forget to place your order? This is the program for you.

Registration is available for a prorated price through the school year.

Our Sweets of the Month Club is a subscription-based program which delivers yummy treats each month while providing necessary on-the-job training for our Pastry Arts Employment Training students.

Sweets of the Month is also a fundraiser for your nonprofit school/organization. Here’s how it works:

  • Your school/organization publicizes the Sweets of the Month Club and earns 10% of the proceeds. Contact the bakery to arrange at 240.361.3698, info@sunflowerbakery.org.
  • Individuals/families subscribe using our website, www.sunflowerbakery.org and designate a school/organization of choice.
  • Your Sweets of the Month order is packaged individually and delivered to your school/organization for distribution on a pre-determined day each month. The exact delivery date is determined by the sponsoring organization. And don’t worry, we will send you a reminder email a couple of days before the scheduled delivery.
  • Your school/organization distributes the packages to subscribers.
  • Subscribers enjoy delicious baked goods while supporting a great cause!
  • Sunflower Bakery donates 10% of the proceeds delivered to each location to the sponsoring school/organization.
  • Subscribing organizations within our local delivery area are required to have a minimum of 12 subscriptions to help defray delivery costs (please contact us at info@sunflowerbakery.org to inquire about the minimum number of subscriptions required for organizations in Virginia and Baltimore). Organizations that cannot meet the minimum number of subscriptions may have a part of their delivery costs deducted from their 10% proceeds.
  • We offer a 10-month subscription (September – June) for $230, and a 9-month subscription (September – March, May – June, skipping April for Passover) for $207. Subscriptions after September 15 are prorated for the months subscribed for.
