Our network of volunteer bakers is making a difference at local food pantries through the generous act of donating freshly baked bread. It’s that simple, it’s that wonderful.​

Due to the effects of the coronavirus pandemic, more than 50 million people may experience food insecurity, including a potential 17 million children.

Every community in the country is home to families who struggle with food insecurity including rural and suburban communities.

The need for nutritious food donations is greater than ever.

Community Loaves is on the rise, baking up a unique, delicious and nutritious solution.

Beginning in Washington and now Oregon, our growing network of volunteers is baking a difference one Honey Oat Sandwich loaf at a time. In 2020, just under 500 volunteer bakers, drivers, flour packers and baking coaches helped us deliver 8,344 loaves to local food pantries.

HOW IT WORKS

Prospective volunteers attend a one-hour information session where they LEARN the details of the Community Loaves bread donation.

REGISTER and BAKE. Volunteers register to participate in our baking brigade through a simple sign up form. With three bread formulas to choose from, this project is for suitable bakers of all skill level. Need a little help, a robust library of videos and a team of mentors can help see you through your first bake.

DONATE – Twice a month, bakers throughout the region take their Community Loaves to a designated neighborhood hub. These hubs, in turn, deliver those loaves direct to the food pantry, it is an Amazing Race of freshly baked bread.
