About

When Pigs Fly bakes fresh bread daily at their new bakery at 1 Merrimack Street (across from the Firehouse) in Newburyport, MA. The bakery would like to donate leftover bread to local agencies at the end of each day. They are seeking volunteers to pick up the bread when the store closes and then deliver to designated locations the next morning. Evening pickups are at 7 pm Sunday through Thursday and 8 pm on Saturday and Sunday. They take about 20 minutes and involve packing loaves into large bags and carrying bags to your car. There are typically two next-day delivery locations in Newburyport and/or surrounding towns. Delivery times are usually in the 8-9 am range so bread can be ready for clients.

Can you sign up to pick up and deliver bread one day a week, one day a month or as an alternate when someone’s schedule gets overloaded? What a difference it will make for people in need to have this nutritious bread.
