Become A Member of This Amazing Baking Community
Flour Power is a Slow Food East End initiative and a way members of the community can provide home-baked loaves of bread to local food pantries. Our goal is to nourish and bring joy to people through a personal touch with hearty home-baked love. These loaves are incredibly appreciated by the recipients, so much so that the need for new bakers keeps growing and growing. The baking cycles take place every 2 weeks and each cycle provides loaves baked by the community.

Since our launch in 2021, we have been providing to the North Fork Spanish Apostolate in Riverhead. We are so excited to be growing and adding CAST North Fork as a second food pantry for our bread program.

How It All Started
Our chair, Pennie Schwartz, wanted to include more of the community in our work: the result was our Feed the Forks initiative, Flour Power – It’s the yeast we can do (yes we like our puns here at SFEE)
“Nothing smells and tastes like love quite like a home-baked bread,” says Pennie, “and it’s a great way to actively involve our members to create the smell, feel, and taste of bread, which nourishes the body and soul.”

How Does Flour Power Work?
Anyone can register to bake. Simply sign up and Slow Food East End will send you the recipe designed for 4 loaves; each baker keeps one loaf and donates three. Baking dates and all of the necessary details are listed on the Slow Food East End website and you will receive reminders for each baking cycle via email. There will be a designated drop-off point at the CAST building in Southold (when you register you will receive detailed instructions for the drop-off procedure).

We hope you’ll sign up and participate in as many baking cycles as you can. We understand how busy everyone is and all we ask is to bake when you can, so please don’t let that stop you from signing up.

Sign up here… we need you!
We are coming together to bake delicious and nutritious loaves for those who are in need. We invite you to join us and bake bread with us.

This program can only continue with the helping hands of our community. Why not give it a try? Also, if you have friends or contacts that might be interested please forward this information to them. Imagine a network of people showing care and connection through food. That is truly Slow Food!!
