What is BREAD Encounters?

BREAD Encounters is an organization founded on the belief that bread has the power to change the world  for the better! 

BREAD as an acronym stands for Bread bakers Rise, Empower And Dough It!

Our mission is to spread kindness and  create human connection through unique community building bread activities which foster unity, inclusion and creativity.

Purposeful "bread encounters" nourish our body and soul. They serve to

  • ... bring communities together to make and break bread and to "share the loaf" with those in need

  • ... educate and revive the craft of making our own healthful bread 

  • ... promote creativity, hope and healing through Bread Therapy®

 

We are passionate bread bakers and certified in The Bread Houses Network's (BHN) methods of Bread Therapy®. As such, BREAD Encounters fully embraces tthe BHN mission "to inspire individuals and communities around the world to discover and develop their creative potential and cooperate across gender, age, ethnic, and religious background through collective bread-making and accompanying art forms..."

So......,

Let's dough it together! 

Because we knead it. 😊
