Portland Woman’s sweet treat raises major funds for Oregon Food Bank

Having a sweet treat is a common way to lift your spirits, but one Portland woman took that sentiment to a whole new level. When the Covid-19 Pandemic got Whitney Rutz down, she decided to indulge a bit and make a giant cinnamon roll with her daughter. Little did she know that her rolls would have a giant response. She’s since raised more than $50,000 for the Oregon Food Bank and delivered dozens of giant rolls to healthcare workers on the frontlines. Stephanie Domurat met up with the baker to learn more about her story. For more information, visit https://give.oregonfoodbank.org/fundraiser/2729473
