Our local community is at the heart and soul of everything we do at Sidecar, and we are dedicated to sharing our appreciation. Each month we will partner with a different charity/non-profit group, and will donate a portion of our proceeds to the group, as well as team up with them on specific initiatives, events, and/or anything else fun they might have going on. We hope you will join us in our efforts to save the world…one doughnut at a time!

Sugar & Stilettos

 “Feeding Families One Sweet Treat At A Time” 

One doughnut at a time, one sweet at a time, any way you say it, we’re making a difference this month with The Sugar & Stilettos Foundation!

In early 2009, Sugar & Stilettos founder Nanci Christopher put together a small baking club in the hopes of sharing family recipes and stories with close friends. Who knew that years later, this fondness for sweet treats would turn into a movement to help L.A. families in need.

The Sugar & Stilettos Charitable Foundation raises awareness and funds for the Westside Food Bank to help end the issues of hunger and food insecurity in Los Angeles. Through an annual bake sale, which brings together the best bakeries, restaurants and shopping in town, Sugar & Stilettos has raised over $200,000.00 since its first event in 2011. The highlight each year is the crowning of “Mr. Sugar & Stilettos,” where a well-known personality dons a pair of stilettos, a tiara and a sash for a good cause. The family-friendly event is full of fun, laughs and plenty of sweet treats!

Why The Westside Food Bank?

The need for food assistance is at an all time high. One in six families now need help keeping food on the table which matches the nationwide average. In the U.S. 50 million people are unsure where their next meal is coming from with women, children, and minorities most impacted by food insecurity issues. Annually, The Westside Food Bank distributes 4.5 million pounds of food to over 70 local social service agencies.
