Professional bakers

Beyond the all-important baking bit, have you done any of the following in the name of the Real Bread Campaign but haven’t yet let us know the details?

If so, please drop us an email to let us know the details so we can use your story to help inspire more bakers to follow suit.

If not done any of these things, would you like to?

Everyone else

As well as becoming a Campaign member and baking and buying Real Bread, could you support the cause in other ways?

  • We need help from baking colleges and tutors to get Real Bread skills training into professional courses.
  • We would be happy to hear from anyone who can lend support in kind in the form of photography, animation, video clips, printing leaflets, t-shirts, cards etc. to help illustrate and share Real Bread skills and to promote the campaign
  • If you are a journalist/writer, would you be interesting in donating an article for our magazine or website?

We'd also love to hear from people who are already working towards the same aims as the Real Bread Campaign.  To help us learn from your experiences and share your knowledge with others, we especially would like to hear from you if you are doing any of the following:

  • Involved with any form of Community Supported Baking, co-operative or not-for-profit bakery or bread scheme
  • Have Real Bread at the heart of your organisation's work, such as teaching bread making for its therapeutic values or as a life skill for people who find themselves marginalised - e.g. ex-offenders or people with physical or mental health issues.

If this sounds like you, please email us: realbread [at]
