Bread Shares–yay or nay?

We may have an exciting new share to add to our current roster of veggies, fruit, eggs and flowers–bread from Hot Bread Kitchen!

If we can get 25 members to sign up for this share, it’s a go! Details below.

The bread share will not just be bread; it will actually include the following:

• Handmade corn tortillas, package of 8. Made from white, blue and red corn. Non-GMO, gluten-free, freezer-friendly.
• Extraordinary multi-grain loaf, 1 loaf. With organic wheat flour, brown rice and wheat germ. Freezer friendly.
• Handmade lavash crackers, 4 oz bag. Made with organic wheat flour and seasoned with kosher salt, poppy, sesame or za’taar.
• Seasonal delectable baked good such as local foccacia, baguettes, sourdough (changes for each delivery).

The New York Times says that Hot Bread Kitchen is “selling some of the best tortillas and crispy lavash in the city”!!

Bread would be delivered on Thursdays just like the rest of the goods (except bi-monthly instead of weekly), beginning on Thursday, July 2nd and ending on Thursday, October 22nd, for a total of nine deliveries. Cost is $180.

Hot Bread Kitchen is a non-profit bakery and job training facility for immigrant women right here in New York City. They hope to train 1,000 women in artisan bread baking and entrepreneurial skills in the next five years.

Please leave a comment below if you think you’d sign up, so we can get a rough idea of how much interest there is.

  2. Hot Bread Kitchen stuff is great — well worth trying. Saxelby Cheesemongers’ stall at Essex Market has some HBK products, notably lavash flat bread.

    Do we need to initiate something other than email acknowledgment in order to get the bread share going?

      Right now we’re still under the 25 person minimum we were told we need in order to make it happen, but there’s a possibility they’ll let us sell shares to those of you who are interested even if we don’t hit 25. We’re waiting to hear back from them on that… In the meantime, anyone who’s interested should leave a comment here or email us so we can keep our tally accurate.
