MSU Bakers Offering Special Teal Products in April to Honor Sexual Assault Awareness Month

Published On: April 4, 2018

MSU Bakers, the on-campus bakery at Michigan State University (MSU) recently announced a month-long initiative to support Sexual Assault Awareness Month. Throughout April, two special products will be available for purchase, with a portion of proceeds benefitting the MSU Sexual Assault Program (SAP).

“It’s important that we recognize the situation, support survivors and be a part of the positive cultural transformation on campus,” shared Cindy Baswell, bakery manager. “Cupcakes and cookies is our path to do that, and we’re honored to provide support to this critical organization.”

The MSU SAP responds to those impacted by sexual violence and works to create a community free of violence and oppression. In addition to counseling, advocacy and support groups for MSU students, a 24-hour crisis line and advocacy services are offered to anyone in the greater Lansing community.

During the month of April, customers can purchase one dozen custom image sugar cookies for $15. Each cookie features a teal ribbon, the international symbol promoting sexual assault awareness. Additionally, one dozen cupcakes with teal and white swirl frosting will be available for $15. For each order placed, MSU Bakers will donate $1 to the MSU SAP.

When they learned about the upcoming initiative, two student team members shared that “it’s really great we (MSU Bakers) are doing this! We’re so proud to be a part of the effort.” In addition to fulfilling customer orders, their staff of experienced bakers and valued students will create these special treats for service in residential dining halls on Thursdays in April.

Product delivery is available to on-campus locations at Michigan State University with a $2 delivery fee. Pick-up is also available at MSU Bakers, located at 220 Service Road in East Lansing. Call 517-353-9310 or order online at
