What we do

Our social enterprise reaches a broad range of people – impacting on health and wellbeing and creating an active, local community based around bread. Having a commercial bakery and a separate training kitchen mean we can really make a difference.

Volunteers are vital to what we do. There are always a variety of very differing roles available, from breadmaking, to workshops, selling the bread on a market stall and even the washing up needs a hand from time to time. Please get in touch if you are interested.

There’s no such thing as a typical week at LoveBread, but if there was it might look something like this:
