Celebrating Year Four with BREAD FOR ALL
Where do you buy your bread?
"Everyone Eats and No One Goes Hungry."
An idea to create work for the men and women who come to St. Joe’s has risen, like good bread, into a wonderful reality! BREAD FOR ALL is celebrating the start of Year 4!
We offer on a subscription basis, our delicious, organic loaves: Whole Wheat; Old World White; Raisin-Cinnamon; Focaccia; and Potato.
We have two trainees at a time from the St. Joe’s community learning the art of bread-baking and developing a strong resume for employment.
Loaves sell for $4, a modest price. We give away loaves to Bethany House and the House of Mercy, and each week bake 16 loaves of sliced white bread for St. Joe’s along with a healthy dessert to complement a weekday meal for the 100 or more who come for lunch.
Our loaves are baked up in both Large and small sizes, whatever you prefer.
BREAD FOR ALL distributes loaves in a variety of ways. We hope you will give us a call – 775-9135 – and take part in this wonderful work of justice:
Pick-up at the bakery – Mt Hope and Hamilton – Monday and Tuesday
Bicycle delivery in the Southwedge neighborhood
Perhaps you can see fit to have a “breadbox” on your porch and a few neighbors you know can order their bread and pick it up from your “breadbox” (we’ll provide you with a breadbox).
Organize 20 or so subscribers from your church and we’ll deliver fresh loaves to you on Saturday afternoon or Sunday morning.
As you know, the Catholic Worker Movement has had a rich tradition of promoting a distributist economic model: small-scale; hand work; local; fair. We think BREAD FOR ALL stands out in the Catholic Worker circles as a fine example of what Peter Maurin and Dorothy Day envisioned. Give us a call: 775-9135 – and take part in this wonderful work of justice.
Want to volunteer?
We depend on our crack team of volunteer bakers who have great fun changing the world one loaf at a time. Give Paul a call at 775-9135.
