Spread the Bread: Community Service from Hearth & Home
Connecting and Supporting Community with Bread (and Biscuits!)
Does your family do a lot of baking during the holidays?
Why not make an extra loaf or two and share with someone in need or a local hero?
Spread the Bread, a global grassroots bread-spreading initiative, is encouraging families to do just that!
Community members are encouraged to bake (or buy) bread, wrap it with a note of hope, inspiration or gratitude, and offer that bread to honor a hero (firemen, veterans, first responders), donate to a food pantry, share with an elder in your community… offering a gift and connecting with your community.
Download these cards to color and attach to your “small loaves of kindness!”
Another initiative is Spread the Biscuits, to honor our animal heroes and animals in need. Download a Spread the Biscuits Starter Kit to get started
