Muddy Fork Bakery is proud to give back to our Bloomington community through Neighbor Loaves, Dine and Donate programs, and donating product and gift certificates to help nonprofits raise money.
Artisan Grain Collaborative
Neighbor Loaves are a project of the Artisan Grain Collaborative. Initially a response to the pandemic and increased demand at food pantries, Neighbor Loaves feed those in need while strengthening the local grain chain.
To participate, bakeries must use at least 50% local and sustainably-grown, stone milled flour.

How we make and bake our Neighbor Loaves
75 loaves a week
Muddy Fork Bakery was one of the first to join in March 2020. We commit to baking 75 whole wheat loaves each week and delivering them to Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard. When we don’t sell 75 Neighbor Loaves, we kick in the balance.
Support this work by adding a Neighbor Loaf to your order when shopping at our Online Store or in person.
Support every month
We are now offering monthly subscriptions if you’d like to commit to supporting Neighbor Loaves on an ongoing basis. Just fill out the form below to get started.
We have donated bread to events raising money for organizations such as Lotus and Middleway House, and we have donated gift certificates to auctions raising money for organizations such as Wonderlab and Cardinal Stage Company.
