The Intergalactic Bakers Federation is looking to mobilize a bunch of generous bakers to share their time and resources with those who might find them useful.
In the Fall of 2018 we will start offering memberships. The cost is something super affordable, and will get you some cool window clings, early notification of our events, and most importantly, puts you in a good position to help other bakers.
Until we get this membership thing going, please sign up for our mail list and we’ll let you know when it’s happening.
All of the dues go to the scholarship fund (minus whatever it costs to process the transaction and mailing fees), and once a year we will send out requests for applications. If you know of a non-profit and/or educational baking organization in your area in need of some help, we want to know. Every year we will donate supplies or cover the costs for training, and we need everyone’s help to make this happen.
We also hope to serve as a hub for putting good people together. Here is one such group doing great work:
AFTER SCHOOL MATTERS
This influential Chicago organization serves teens from under-resourced neighborhoods, providing them with program opportunities in the arts and sciences. After the Assembly, our bakers spent a day with a class in the culinary arts, and were hosted by the Palmer House. This is an incredible program run by an unstoppable woman, Gloria Hafer – if you can help these kids out by donating money, equipment or ingredients, please firstname.lastname@example.org.
The IBF is not-for-profit and 100% volunteer.
