About Bread Angels

Membership and its benefits

We have three levels of membership to encourage anyone who shares our values to participate in our mission to change the world through bread.

Level One - Bake and Change:  For any bakers out there who love to bake, who want to support our aims, and who share our values, we would love your support.  For 5 pounds a month, you will have level one membership.  This contribution is very valuable as it helps us change the world through bread. 

At this level of membership, you will receive:

1.  A quarterly newsletter with news, views, and free recipes
2.  Free access to our online Basic Bread class
3.  10% off any course at the School of Artisan Food
4.  Three single use vouchers for a discount on flour ordered from the Wessex Mill

Level Two - Bake and Build:  We will love to welcome any bakers who are already selling bread into their local communities.  For 60.00 pounds a year you will have level two membership.  This contribution is very valuable as it helps us change the world through bread. 

At this level of membership, you will receive:

1.  A quarterly newsletter with news, views, and free recipes
2.  Three single use vouchers for a discount from the Wessex Mill, milling flour for generations in the heart of Wessex
3. Three single use vouchers for a discount on flour ordered from Shipton Mill
4.  10% off any course at the School of Artisan Food
5.  A free listing of your micro bakery on our website

Level Three - Full Bread Angel Membership:  When you complete the Bread Angel course you automatically become a member and receive full access to the network as part of your course fee.  After that, it is 60.00 pounds per year.  

At this level of membership, you will receive:

1.  Discounts on equipment, ingredients, and further training courses.  We are thankful for our partners who generously give affiliated members of Bread Angels discounts from 10-20% on their products and services.  Click there to read more about our partners.

2.  Ability to list your micro bakery and/or teaching business on the website.  The Bread Angels website receives hundreds of hits per day and is an excellent way to show case your business.  In addition, the Bread Angels website is a booking engine which means you do not have to set up your own. The Bread Angels website benefits from direct links from the Virtuous Bread website which has thousands of followers and is an award winning social enterprise operating in the world of food.

3.  Regular newsletters with valuable information. We send out frequent newsletters to full members that contain free recipes; information about opportunities to participate in markets, to speak and/or demonstrate at events ranging from shows to festivals; connections to journalists that will help build your profile; volunteering opportunities; and much more.

4.  The halo effect from the money invested in press services and PR services.  These services raise our profile and generate opportunities for you that help to market you and your business.

5.  Invitations to great events.  We try to get together once or twice a year either as a social-only event, or as a learning and social event.  

6.  Unlimited ongoing coaching and support.  Full members get to join our very active, supportive, highly experienced and fully private facebook group.  Through this group, we all have the opportunity to benefit from the collective experience of the members who are seasoned professionals and talented bakers, able to give advice on everything from what to sell at markets, the best place to buy insurance, or how to fry a doughnut.  Full members also get to participate in discounted master classes that we take with famous bakers.  Further, because continuing professional development is very important to all of us, full members frequently join other Bread Angels on bake days, or simply get together to test recipes and talk bread.

7.  That rosy glow.  When you are a full member, you know you are helping to effect positive social change through bread and that is heroic indeed!

Membership is managed through Go Cardless which can be cancelled by the member at any time.
