For the past 7 years, Bakery On Main has donated gluten free products to CT Foodshare  to help the hungry families in our area and just this week,  for the 3rd year in a row, we also participated in the 2014 Convoy of Caring.

We are excited to announce that  as part of our Fall into Gluten Free Giving campaign at Bakery On Main, for every order made on our website http://www.bakeryonmain.com, ewe’ll donate $2 to the Connecticut Foodshare! How ’bout them apples? Just by ordering your favorite gluten free snacks, you can help feed those in need; with holidays approaching and spending rising, this will make a huge impact. Thank you in advance for your help!

Fall has arrived here in New England, which brings exciting things for Bakery On Main. We have many great events coming up that you’ll find us sampling our delicious snacks at. If you’re interested in finding out more about these events or attending them yourself, please visit our events page!

Convoy of caringOne upcoming event that we are very excited to be participating in once again is the 2014 Food Industry Convoy of Caring CT. We are proud to have represented Bakery On Main at this event for the last 3 years and look forward to the 2014 convoy to be even better than years past. The convoy is run as always by the CT Foodshare and has grown each year in part by the great coverage of our local media; like our friend Scott Haney pictured below!  IMG_0154  IMG_0151

 

Over the past 5 years, Bakery On Main had donated 95,899 lbs of food (about 80,000 meals!) we aim to keep this trend going and continue to be one of the leading contributors to Food Share CT’s haul each year! We look at this convoy as our inaugural kick off into the giving season, so this year we’ve decided to take it a step further from just merely donating food. For every purchase on our website during October, Bakery On Main will be donating $2 to the CT Foodshare! This is a great way to get your favorite Bakery On Main snacks and help those in need during a time where holiday spending rises!

This past Tuesday, September 25th, Bakery On Main took part in the Food Industry Convoy of Caring. The Convoy of Caring was started to recognize food industry partners who regularly support Foodshare throughout the year. In 2011 Bakery On Main donated over 13,000 lbs of food! ( 13,387 to be exact!) This equates to 11,148 meals! I can’t wait to see our ending numbers this year! So far we are over 5,000lbs and still have a busy three months to go!

Here are some pictures from the other morning! We were on site at 5AM and were on WFSB Channel 3 news!

 

 

This was such a great morning! Meeting all of the other companies that give back to the local community! To learn more what Foodshare does and to get involved please visit www.foodshare.org 

 

Peace, Love & Granola,

Whitney
