Baked Goods Gleaning – Tall Grass/Cafe Besalu for St. Luke’s Edible Hope Program

Since December 2015, we’ve been collecting unsold bread and baked goods from Tall Grass Bakery each Saturday and Sunday evening, and delivering it to St. Luke’s Episcopal Church for their weekday meal program serving neighbors in need. This simple and satisfying project is a win-win, spanning just a few Ballard blocks while making a tangible difference in people’s lives.  In Spring 2018, we also joined up with Café Besalu, to bring even more goodness to St. Luke’s meal program.

Thanks to the generosity of Tall Grass Bakery and Café Besalu, and the efforts of our volunteers, literally a TON of delicious baked goods finds its way to our hungry neighbors instead of landing in the composting dumpster.  Hats off to St. Luke’s dedicated volunteer kitchen team for all their efforts feeding our neighbors – we are grateful to be partnering with you! St. Luke’s ‘Edible Hope’ meals ministry provide over 2,000 meals a month.

Volunteers welcome!

Want to join the Baked Goods Team?  Please have a car, and be available Monday or Tuesday afternoons, or Wednesdays or Sundays at 6pm. Contact Julia for more info.

This is a joint project of Sustainable Ballard and St. Luke’s Episcopal Church.
