Lewes Bread Club

The Lewes Bread Club bakes and supplies handmade organic bread at not-for-profit prices (e.g. £2.50 for an 800g loaf). Our intention is to slowly and steadily grow into a full time community run bakery. From May 1st 2015, we will be baking weekly from our base at the Lewes Community Kitchen. Please support us by ordering your bread from us. Home deliveries are available in the Cliffe area. For our price list and ordering information, please go to our facebook page or email lewesbreadclub@gmail.com.

£2.50 for a loaf and that's non profit making????? Hope that's a typo or i'll stick to my £1 Tesco loaf.

And I thought my local for-profit bakery was quite expensive!

Ignore the naysayers, I think this is a fantastic idea and initiative! Can I ask you if you use organic, stoneground flour in your granary and wholemeal loaves? How can we put in a weekly order?

Thanks for your support. Yes, we do use organic stoneground flour and also different flours like rye, spelt etc. We try and use locally milled flour as well. For exact details about ingredients, orders etc. please email the bread club at lewesbreadclub@gmail.com. Weekly orders will be most welcome. I am one of the community bakers so don't directly deal with the nitty gritty of the bread club, but the others will be glad to help.

this seems rather over priced to me as is Flint Owl Bakery, as another person said typical of Lewes,

£2.50 for a loaf is indicative that this like so many pretend community initiatives is for a narrow section of the local population. Another example is the community kitchen, which I am told has a vegan chef!! Projects such as these would be more worthwhile if they helped ordinary folk improve their cooking skills and started where they are rather than imposing a privileged middle class culture that is off-putting to those who would probably get the most out such enterprises. I am certain good wholemeal bread can be made at home for a fraction of this price.

I address Skeptical Green - you are write to be sceptical. Lewes bread club and the community kitchen support many different communities and people from all kinds of backgrounds. Yes, you can bake good organic stoneground wholemeal bread at home - but not at a very tiny cost, less than £2.50 perhaps but that's not the point; you must think a little deeper that a service has to be sustainable - not here today and gone tomorrow so sensible pricing is important. Be sceptical but do get real!
