We have started a Monday bake shift to support the many groups who are helping alleviate food poverty in Birmingham during the pandemic. Loaf staff are running this in their own time so the only cost is ingredients, electricity and petrol. All bread is donated free of charge.
So far we are delivering to the B30 Food Bank, Solidarity Kitchen and the Active Wellbeing Society who are co-ordinating for Food Banks who have found the lockdown disruptive, along with local schools with key workers’ children who are also providing free school meals to those who need them. If you know of other organisations who can distribute our bread, please email firstname.lastname@example.org who is co-ordinating this.
As of June 11th we received a fantastic £2500 in voluntary donations and plan to continue this initiative throughout the pandemic. Please consider donating £2 to £5 with your order.
Any surplus funds will be donated to a food charity. We will report fully on how this goes later in the Summer.
