Double your impact by participating in our June purchase-matching program!

Supporters who purchase a Neighbor Loaves meal at Village Bakery or Casa Nueva during the month of June will actually be delivering two meals for their donation. Each meal purchased online or in person will be matched and distributed to food access sites by Community Food Initiatives and the Athens County Food Pantry.

About the project

Neighbor Loaves (& Meals) delivers bread and meals purchased at local bakeries and restaurants directly to Athens county food access programs. The project supports our region’s organic staple crop farmers, helps local bakers and chefs sell their products to their customers, and brings their nutritious recipes to our region’s neighbors in need. All items are made with at least 50% local grown staple grain, beans, and nuts, and picked up and delivered directly to food access programs by Community Foods Initiatives and the Athens County Food Pantry.
