Our Mission

To nurture strong communities through the connection, training, and empowerment of home-based bakers to reduce hunger and promote wellness.


Food insecurity is rising, and wholegrain nutrition is greatly needed by our neighborhood food banks. Twice-a-month donations from our home kitchens make a real impact.

The Knead Is There

How it Works


Prospective volunteers attend a one-hour Zoom session where they LEARN the details of our bread and cookie donations.

REGISTER and BAKE. This project, baking whole grain goodness for our local food banks, is suitable for bakers of all skill level.

Bake our Honey Oat Sandwich Loaves, our Breader Together Energy Cookies or both. The food banks appreciate and knead all we can provide. The recipes we use and supplies you’ll need are available to you after you’ve registered as a volunteer.

DONATE – Twice a month, volunteers take their home-baked loaves and energy cookies to their neighborhood hub. These hubs, in turn, deliver the freshly baked items direct to the pantry. It is an Amazing Race of nutritious whole grain goodness to the emergency food system.
