Got Milk? Bake Sale is Brooklyn’s New, Late Night Cookie Delivery Service
By Sarah Zorn
Consider Autumn Stanford your virtual nana: always at the ready with a glass of milk and homemade cookies. Although instead of lying in wait after school, she’s launched an online delivery company largely in service of hard partiers and insomniacs instead—operational on Thursday and Sunday from 6-11:30pm, and Friday and Saturday from 6-1:30am.
Baptized “Bake Sale,” the new enterprise messengers chocolate chip, oatmeal, snickerdoodle, peanut butter, confetti sugar and ube crinkle cookies (an ode to her husband/partner’s Filipino heritage) anywhere in the city through Postmates, or within a two-mile radius of Brooklyn Kolache Co.—the couple’s original business—via Grubhub.
And while the concept is bound to appeal to neighborhood night owls, plastered after 15 shot-strong fishbowls at the twosome’s taqueria, Swell Dive, the idea actually arose shortly after the election, out of fear of lost funding for local, non-profit programs. So piggybacking on the bake sale’s intrinsic fundraising component, 10% of proceeds (from $2.50 a cookie, or $21 per dozen) benefit Bed-Stuy Campaign Against Hunger.
