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.
