Spread the Bread


Our Price: $1.75
Quantity:


Spread the Bread encourages people to bake or buy a favorite bread, wrap it with a note of hope, inspiration or gratitude and offer that bread to honor a hero or help someone in need.

1. Start with your group or buddy to help with the project.

2. Determine who you would like to give the bread to. Suggestions: Contact nursing homes, assisted living, Meals-on-Wheels, shelters, hospitals and food pantries. Also, we can’t forget our heroes: the police, firefighters, veterans, and soldiers. A nice fresh loaf of bread made with them in mind can be a real morale boost. If you are shipping them to the soldiers, banana breads and fruit breads stay fresh the longer.

3. Spread the Word! If you just want to involve your troop or group in the bread baking and spreading, great! Otherwise, you can ask other groups or friends to help or to promote your project. Make sure you let them know WHEN and WHERE you need the loaves.

ANY kind of bread is fine: quick bread, bread machine, yeast bread, bread from a mix, holiday bread, everyday bread… ANY KIND!


4. Bakers start your ovens… Mix up a batch of your favorite recipe or mix and start baking.

Decorate: Ask your Girl Scouts to think of these loaves as very special presents that are going to be given to people who rarely receive presents. When you wrap your loaves of bread add a special note, quote, bow, gift bag, colored plastic wrap, wrapping paper, small toys, doilies – anything that makes your loaves look special, and will make those who receive them feel special.

5. Bake a difference

As you bake, talk about who will receive their loaves and why you think it’s important to be generous. Children often feel helpless in the face of sadness and tragedy – help them to see that they can do something to alleviate the sorrow and loneliness of others.

6. Collect and prepare [If you are involving your community in your project]

7. Deliver your bread. Involve as many people that helped out to assist in the delivering.
