The Real Bread Campaign is part of Sustain: The alliance for better food and farming.
It is funded by membership fees, donations and charitable grants.
The Campaign is part of the food and farming charity Sustain and relies upon YOU to be able to keep going.
Please note that we process membership applications once a week.
The two key things from our side are that:
The main new project for which we now need bread is Together We Rise, a new project to help people living with mental health issues, and some of the most vulnerable and disadvantaged people facing social exclusion, to benefit from the therapeutic, social and employment opportunities offered by Real Bread making. You can read our plans here.
Our work also includes:
You can read highlights of our success to date, which we could not have achieved without the practical and financial support of our members, here.
The main benefit of joining the Real Bread Campaign is that you become a member of the only network dedicated to championing the rise of Real Bread in our local communities and the people who bake it.
But if it's stuff you're interested in, then we've got a doozy for you, too. For example, some bread cLass/course DISCOUNTS ARE WORTH MORE THAN THE INDIVIDUAL MEMBERSHIP FEE!
Professional Real Bread bakers can also:
Annual Real Bread Campaign membership starts from LESS THAN £2 A MONTH!!
For an annual 10% discount you simply need to choose to pay by annual subscription. As this payment goes automatically each year, it also save you having to remember to renew your memebrship.
Membership is open to eveyone and we have a lower rate for people joining on behalf of organisations/enterprises with an annual turnover below the VAT threshold (currently £79,000), and individuals.
As we're the only organisation fighting the corner for Real Bread we think it's only fair we ask for a teensy, weensy bit more from the larger companies that benefit directly and indirectly from our work.
Even if you don't make your dough from bread, then hopefully you'll agree it's only right we charge individuals less than organisations.
To take advantage of this 10% discount each year, you simply need to pay by annual subscription online.
|Membership level||Annual fee|
|Individuals / enterprises with an annual turnover up to £73,000||£22.50|
|Enterprise turnover between £73,000 and £250,000||£45|
|Enterprise turnover between £250,000 and £1,000,000||£67.50|
|Enterprise turnover over £1,000,000||£99|
If you'd prefer to pay if paying yearly, the rates are £25, £50, £75 and £110, respectively.
You also have the option of joining London Food Link at the same time, saving 25% off the usual rate for our sister network.
When you join us, where it asks 'where did you hear about us?' please note the name of the bakery, friend, magazine/newspaper or whatever/whoever pointed you our way. This helps us to know which ways of promoting our charity work best.
This is new and in the future we hope to be able to run prize draws for new Campaign members who complete this box and existing members who made the recommendation!
We organise frequent competitions for Real Bread Campaign members and to date, we have given away thousands of pounds worth of prizes.
Here are just some of the hundres of pounds worth of prizes we've given away to Real Bread Campaign members so far:
If you'd like to donate a prize for Real Bread Campaign members to win, please contact us.
We promote competitions in True Loaf (our quarterly magazine that goes to around 1000 of the most passionate real breadheads in the land), Breadcrumbs (our monthly enewsletter to our wider supporter network of more than 7500 people), The Real Baker-e online forum, as well as to our many thousands of Twitter and Facebook followers.
