We are not just a bakery ! We bake with communities of all kinds as a way of delivering training and opportunities for people. We know that when people have access to employability skills and are valued as a creative part of a community we all benefit. We also want to live in a that is healthy which is why all our breads are a fair price and made from simple ingredients with organic flours. We work in innovative ways to keep money and other value in our local economy and protect our environment. We have a community bakery currently operating from a small rented kitchen in Shieldfield, Newcastle and we need more space to grow. We have identified a new bakery premises also in Shieldfield owned by Newcastle City Council and have finalised Heads of Terms for 10 year lease from the council. The new premises have been empty for some years and was formerly a supermarket. The interior of the building needs some refurbishment to become a bakery.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
We have over five years experience using food and baking as a means to bring diverse communities together, develop agency within communities, create pathways to employment and make healthy food affordable and available to all. Shieldfield used to have a bakery and we want to bring one back which will serve both the local community and other communities across Tyneside and beyond.
