A note from Kathy Anderson:
Would you like to be part of a greater baking community in 2021?
Community Loaves is a regional nonprofit founded last spring to address food insecurities due to the pandemic and economic hardships by providing home baked Honey Oat Pan Loaves to food pantries. To date, there are 34 hubs from Bellingham to Portland, and 491 volunteer bakers.
There is a newly formed hub on Bainbridge Island. We are baking in our home quarantine kitchens and donating loaves to Fish Line in Poulsbo and soon to Helpline House twice a month. Right now, we need more bakers to join the effort so we can feed more people in our greater community. The need is great.
This project is easy and very well supported, suitable for novice to advanced bakers. The bread is delicious, and I like the idea that my bread is feeding those in need through a task I enjoy. The commitment is voluntary – you bake loaves when it fits your schedule. Each recipe produces four loaves – three for the pantry and one for your family.
Jan Jackson is our local hub coordinator (firstname.lastname@example.org).
