Why Give Away Free Bread?

Before I started Sour Flour, I had decided I was going to try to give away 1000 free loaves of bread. I have been asked many times, “why?”, and have never really been able to give a good reason. In my mind it was just obvious: Free bread.

Anyway, because that answer doesn’t work for everyone, here are 20 good reasons to give away free bread. Please feel free to add to the list:

1. It’s fun
2. It doesn’t cost much to make
3. It’s good karma
4. It connects you with your community
5. It lets you practice your bread baking
6. It’s a way to communicate with others
7. It’s a good way to get feedback on your bread
8. It’s tasty
9. It’s healthy
10. It gets people thinking more about food
11. It is a good way to recruit people to your cause
12. It allows you to teach something
13. It’s a good way to get rid of something that would otherwise go bad
14. It can get you favors and return gifts in return
15. It helps you develop people skills
