"We're excited to give back to our community that has welcomed our bakery with open arms since we opened in October 2019."

National Food Bank Day became official in 2017 and is celebrated annually on the first Friday of the September. The purpose of the day is to bring awareness to the fact that their are people in our community that experience food insecurity on a regular basis. Not having enough food is more common than you think and may be as close as you next door neighbor.
