Collecting Bread from Tall Grass Bakery and Cafe Besalu for St. Luke’s ‘Edible Hope’ Meals
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 breakfast 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 feeds over 2,000 meals a month.
