As the country cautiously pokes it toe into the concept of a post-lockdown reality, with people returning to work and school, and with other shops reopening, we’re changing a few things at Loaf.
Extended opening hours!
Over the last couple of weeks requests for deliveries have reduced, and customers who have returned to work have told us they have trouble collecting during the day. We’re responding to this as follows.
We’re ceasing deliveries on Thursday and Fridays. This will enable us to make more products, reintroduce lunches, and open for longer hours.
From next week (Thurs 18th) we will be open from 12-6pm Thursday and Friday and 8.15-12pm on Saturday, giving you more time to collect your bread.
Because people are still shielding, we will keep offering free Saturday morning deliveries within a mile radius of Loaf for those unable to get to the shop.
Please continue to place your bread orders online for collection. This means you can come at any time, avoiding a long queue at opening. Ordering through the online shop re-opens every Saturday afternoon and is the best way to secure your weekly bread.
Lunches are back!
With more people back on Stirchley high street we’re being asked for lunches again. And so lunches we will provide!
- Sausage and veggie rolls – Thur-Sat from opening.
- Tarka daal curry – Thursday from 12pm.
- Pizza – Fridays from 12pm.
Lunches are only available from the shop and are not available for pre-order or delivery.
Croissants every day!
We’re bringing back weekday pastries so we can offer croissants on Thursday and Friday as well as Saturday.
Bread donations raise £2,500!
Last month we added a donation button to our online shop. So far you have donated £2,500 towards us supplying food banks, schools and other local organisations with bread to alleviate food poverty. This is amazing and beyond our expectations. We will be working out our costs soon, so we can donate any surplus to where it’s needed. And we intend to continue running this programme for the foreseeable future. Thank you!
If you’re looking for more practical ways to help those in need of food during this crisis we can recommend contacting the Active Wellbeing Society who have successfully rejigged their organisation into a massive food collection and distribution network. They always need volunteers, especially for deliveries.
Thanks for your continued support and custom. We hope you are safe and well in this difficult time.
