Introducing ‘Just Bread’ at Heart of BS13
By Jodie Smith
An update from Heart of BS13’s team about a new scheme, ‘Just Bread’ which is all about making an accessible, healthy loaf of bread available to BS13 households.
We at Heart of BS13 have been working with amazing Bristol bread makers Harts Bakery and Batches Bakery to create a family loaf that is delicious, nutritious AND affordable. Our loaf is made with simple ingredients, it’s slow-proved to make it easily digestible, sliced to make it easy for sandwich-making, and it only costs 75p! And throughout its development it’s been taste-tested and has got the thumbs up from our local kids!
Most bread that is available in the shops has been designed to be quick and cheap to produce and to have a long shelf life. This generally means it’s crammed full of E numbers, salt and sugar, as well as artificial colours and flavours. Ever noticed how shop-bought bread can leave you feeling bloated and lethargic? Well, our bread has none of the nasties that do this: it’s JUST BREAD, and we’re really happy to be able to offer this low-cost, high-quality alternative. The bread is destined to be sold on the Mobile Food Shop E-cargo bike to the most vulnerable and severely food insecure households (it is a street by street service).
Right now the bread is available to buy 11am-4pm on Wednesdays and Thursdays at our Community Freezer, which you can find at Unit 10 (in the rear carpark) at The Gatehouse Centre. The Community Freezer is full of FREE, freshly prepared, frozen meals that are available to BS13 residents. Anyone can request to use our Community Freezer – come in and see us at the Gatehouse, or complete the application form on our website.
Heart of BS13’s Food Programme Manager Jodie Smith has written for this blog (formally Bristol Bites Back Better) about the project’s three main areas of work – food, horticulture, and climate and biodiversity action.
By setting the wheels in motion now, together we can transform the future of food in our city, building in resilience over the next decade. So, what change do you want to see happen that will transform food in Bristol by 2030? Do you already have an idea for how Bristol can make this happen?
