High Rise Bakers has grown out of regular baking sessions at Bridging the Gap's BIG Thursdays. We bake every Wednesday and Friday in a borrowed kitchen at 39 Waddell Court, one of Gorbals last remaining high rise blocks.
We aim to gather people living on the margins in G5 with refugees, to make slow-risen, nutritious, delicious and fairly-priced bread and baked goods for sale. We also run bread-making workshops and family Burgers and Buns Day. We hope to be able to create some decent jobs and have people in Gorbals enjoying our delicious bread in their homes knowing how it can benefit their health in comparison to industrial bread. We are members of the Real Bread Campaign.
