Indiegogo campaign update

Help Make it Happen

Thanks for all the support on our fundraising campaign from our family, friends, and community.  You have spread our message at your workplaces, facebook pages, and throughout your larger communities.

We have also gotten some great press in the Indy and there will be more to come.  You can read the little piece about us here.

We are fundraising to pay our bakers’ salaries so they can spend 4 months experimenting with different economic models, so that we can make this bakery sustainable in the long term while building access to food.  This is seed money so that we can figure out how to scale up to full-time production as a worker co-operative!  Continue reading

Indiegogo Campaign Launches!

We are at the end of our 9th season here at the bakery, and we’ve been dreaming big.

Over the past 2 years, we’ve baked weekly bread for an average of 35 families & households. We’ve built a bakery where members contribute what they can, and receive the bread that they want and need. We have worked to build an economy based on love and solidarity. Bread Uprising’s membership is a radical majority (at least 60%) people of color, and there is priority membership for anyone who does not have consistent access to food.

Now, we’re ready to take root, grow bigger, and blossom. And we need your help!

Check out http://www.indiegogo.com/breaduprising or watch the video below to find out about our fundraising campaign. We’re using the money to create a worker co-op, make great bread accessible to everyone, and ensure that we’ll be here for the long haul!
