Tall Grass Bakery and Mighty-O Donuts 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.  In Spring 2018, we also joined up with Cafe Besalu, to bring even more goodness to St. Luke’s meal program. In 2021 we added doughnuts from Mighty-O Donuts to the progrm. This simple and satisfying project is a win-win, spanning just a few Ballard blocks while making a tangible difference in people’s lives. 

Thanks to the generosity of Tall Grass Bakery,  and Mighty-O Donuts Ballard 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 feeds 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 Chris for more info.

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