The Festival of Trees needs donations of fresh baked goods and candies to sell each day. We cannot accept food items from kitchens not approved by the Board of Health.

WHERE CAN YOU MAKE THEM?
- Food must be prepared in a Board of Health approved kitchen. You may print a Board of Health form below. It must be completed and signed by the facility representative of the approved kitchen being used.
- Institutions, commercial, and school kitchens that have been aproved by the Board of Health may give permission for groups to use their facilities during "off hours."

WHERE DO YOU TURN IN ITEMS?
You may bring your items to the South Towne Expo Center Tuesday, November 28 through Saturday December 1, 2012. Items must be accompanied with a completed Board of Health form.
HOW ARE THE ITEMS TO BE PRESENTED?
As soon as items are cool, wrap them in clear plastic to seal in freshness. DO NOT WRAP WHILE STILL WARM. Most items sell best in single serving sizes (such as four cookies per bag). Please do not use colored cellophane to wrap items. Clearly label each item identifying the ingredients (nuts, fruit, dairy). Any ribbon or packaging that you can do is greatly appreciated! (Please do not use staples.) Be Creative!
NEW CANDY MAKERS
Festival of Trees is always looking for candy makers who are willing to donate their time and talent to benefit children at Primary Childrne's Medical Center through Festival of Trees. If you are interested, please contact LeAnn Paine at Llovepaine@yahoo.com or 801.544.3978.
BREADS AND CAKES
Wrap tightly as soon as they are cool. Be careful - DO NOT WRAP WHILE WARM. Bread spoils very quickly if wrapped while warm.
There are many requests for sugar-free treats. The Sweet Shoppe features an area for sugar-free goodies and fruit. It is especially important to have these items labeled.
Needed each day of Festival is a supply of home-style candies, baked goods, and other items such as:
Pecan rolls, fudge, divinity, peanut brittle, caramels, taffy, toffee, chocolates, suckers, gingerbread houses, caramel corn, gingerbread boys and girls, cookies, decorated sugar cookies, home-style bread, coffee rings, dinner rolls, cakes, sweet rolls, nut and fruit breads, fruit cakes, brownies, cupcakes, pies, and popcorn balls.
Some items sell so fast it is impossible to satisfy the demand! They include hand-dipped chocolates, divinity, caramels, toffee, home-style yeast breads, and gingerbread cookies... almost anything that is individually wrapped!
