Real Bread Week
The Real Bread Campaign’s annual, international celebration of additive-free loaves and people who make them returns from 22 February to 1 March 2020 for its 11th year. Real Break Week throws the spotlight on the amazing businesses and initiatives that help people who have experienced a tougher time than most of us to benefit from baking.
It encourages people to buy Real Bread from local, independent bakeries, to look for The Loaf Mark and make their own Real Bread. It’s also a time that the charity Sustain, which receives no funding or sponsorship for its bready work, urges everyone to join the Real Bread Campaign.
Bakeries, baking schools, mills, schools, care homes, youth and other community groups around the world organise Real Bread events and activities including classes, bake-togethers, open days and more. They are invited to add the details to the Real Bread events calendar.
Everyone is encouraged to bake Real Bread with and for their families, colleagues, neighbours and other friends.
A particular focus of this year’s celebrations are the enterprises and projects in the UK and beyond that help people to benefit from the therapeutic, social and employment opportunities of baking, particularly Real Bread. Based on the findings of the Rising Up report, Together We Rise works to unite and highlight these ‘islands of good practice’ and help turn them into a landscape in which the benefits are promoted more widely and routinely made available to many thousands more people.
