Short and pudgy are no reason not to donate, please donate them with confidence.
Regarding the difference between the bakes…what do you think has contributed to the difference?
Regarding standards for donation – we dont’ have anything in writing, but I think we will create a page for just that. Here are some quick thoughts:
In general if you would eat and enjoy the bread it is worthy of donation, otherwise hold it back. In addition if any of the following is true you likely should not donate …Soggy loaves, burnt loaves are not donatable, squat loaves that look more like a can of Spam.
Loaves that are split due to under proofing or collapse during to over proofing are fine.
