Companions Real Bread
We're a growing community gathered around a commercial Real Bread bakery, supporting ex-offenders to resettle effectively into our local communities and not reoffend. In contrast to the industrial loaf, Real Bread is made slowly from just flour, water, salt and yeast, with no additives. Just as we believe that Real Bread fosters health and wellbeing, so we believe that honesty (with self as well as others) is the best way to move forwards towards a more positive and fulfilling life.
Loaf bundle deal: buy a multiseeded loaf and a stag loaf for a fiver.
