You can choose to pay a little kindness forward when you order by donating to our suspended food scheme. This runs permanently in the bakery, but is even more important now with issues of food poverty arising from COVID-19.
How the scheme works
When you add a donation to your order, we print out a receipt for that amount and hang it in the bakery window for passersby by to see. Anyone can come into the bakery and use the scheme, no questions asked. They choose what they need from the shop – bread, pastry, lunch, a hot drink and take it away for free, because you have already paid for it. We then deduct whatever they have chosen from the receipt in the window until all the donation has been used.
If you visit the bakery you can also donate to the scheme by asking to ‘suspend’ items when you order your own treats to take away. Again we print a receipt and hang it in the window.
