Bread Houses

The bread house movement unites people from all walks of life through the simple act of baking. Organisers and participants say bread houses spark cross-cultural dialogues and enhance understanding among community members while bridging ethnic, cultural, racial, economic and religious divides.

Today bread houses can be found in 20 cities in more than 16 countries across Europe, Africa, Asia, North and South America, and Africa. The bread house movement consists mainly of two components: community centres, with regular hours and frequent workshops, and events that are held at least once a month at different locations.
