Ray gives food for thought

first_imgCelebrity chef Rachael Ray says helping the hungry can be easy as pie. Ray is promoting the Great American Bake Sale, a national campaign in which participants hold bake sales this summer to raise money to feed hungry children. “Imagine what it’s really like to go hungry,” Ray said on ABC’s “This Week” broadcast on Sunday. “And then imagine what that must be like for a small child, how that must make them feel, completely lesser-than in every way; they’re not good enough to get food?” The Great American Bake Sale was created by the charity Share Our Strength in partnership with PARADE Magazine. This year it runs from May 19 to Aug. 31, and the partner is the Food Network. – Associated Press ‘Office’ stars tour Scranton Ain’t no party like a Scranton, Pa., party. That’s what “The Office” stars Brian Baumgartner and Angela Kinsey told a breakfast crowd as they visited the city where the NBC sitcom is set. The line was uttered this season by Steve Carell, who plays the buffoonish regional manager at Dunder Mifflin Paper Co. Baumgartner and Kinsey, who play accountants Kevin and Angela, arrived Friday and toured some of the city’s watering holes – including Poor Richards Pub at South Side Bowl, Coopers Seafood House, Farley’s and The Bog, most of which have been mentioned on the show. After the breakfast Saturday, they toured Penn Paper and Supply Co. and attended an autograph session and rooftop party. “We actually teared up a bit because of the reception you gave us. We’re just so proud to be here and meet you guys,” Kinsey said. Scranton Mayor Chris Doherty was equally complimentary. “We just want to thank you for everything `The Office’ has done for Scranton,” Doherty said. “You really have made a tremendous impact.” – Associated Press160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
