The Women’s Bakery
A Better World Through Baking!
International Women’s Day matters more than ever to all of us at Baker & Spice. We are a local woman-owned business; our staff is 75% female (and 100% amazing) so we know first hand that when you invest in women you invest in community and a better world.
On March 8th we’ll join forces with African Road and The Togetherness Orphan Cooperative to help a group of 20 women and girls in Rwanda start a Women’s Bakery of their own.
We’ve asked grandma’s from all over the world for their tried & true cookie recipes to help us create a cookie box full of global goodness. The best part? 100% of the sale of every box will directly benefit The Women’s Bakery. The cookie finalists are:
Walnut&DateMamoul:Syria ♦ Krin
glor:Sweden ♦ Cochnitos:Mexico
Gewüz-Plätzchen:Germany ♦ Mekenki S Makovo Seme: Bulgaria
Chocolate Macarons: France ♦ Gribee: Lebanon ♦ Chocolate Chip:Oregon
Cucidata:Italy ♦ Hamantashen:Isreal ♦ Brownie:USA
Vaas Piskota:Hungary ♦ Polvorones de Avellanas:Spain
Our goal is to raise $5000 and we appreciate your support as we do what we can to help other women in the world help themselves and others.
Are you from out of town or afraid of having a cookie box in your house? We would be happy to donate your cookies to a refugee family here in Portland…just check the box when you purchase.
