The Problem

When families are having a hard time putting food on the table, treats from the grocery store are a luxury item. Our bakery item distribution changes that for many!

Our Plan

Our family distributes food which would otherwise be disposed of to the local community. We have connected with about fifty families so far, numbering over 100 people (if not more). We want to make our donated bakery item distribution more official. We will call it the Little Free Bakery or Spread The Bread and create a Facebook group for it. This will help us better communicate with our community members and make it more personal. Over the course of the pandemic, we witnessed (and experienced) firsthand what food-shortage looks like and feels like. We were very happy to help alleviate some everyday stress over food. Our own family and the people we spoke with expressed such joy over something as simple as a cake. When families are having a hard time putting food on the table, treats from the grocery store are a luxury item. Our bakery item distribution changes that for many! We are able to give children birthday cakes, moms croissants for Mother’s day and families bread rolls to go with their dinner. We needed to take a break from distributing due to logistic difficulties, but we have received so many inquiries asking for us to start again that we want to try again. We will create this as a Roots and Shoots project and have more direction this time around.
