The Bread Truck and Getbread.ca wasn’t created by us…it just happened to us! At the very start of the Corona virus pandemic and when people who were returning home to Canada started to quarantine for 14 days, the 4 of us had what we thought would be our last dinner in the same house for awhile. Like most people, there was a feeling of uncertainty in our stomachs and we knew that precautions would be necessary going forward. We shared some stories and one in particular stood out. You see Carlos’ and his family own a bakery and the previous day the 4 of us took some bread and pastries and delivered it to a few friends that we knew had just returned from holidays and were not leaving the house. We talked about how great it felt to help someone who was essentially ‘stuck’ in their own home, and how grateful they were for getting such simple yet necessary items delivered to their door. It was a positive and heart warming discussion and by the end we came up with a simple idea….”lets flyer our communities and get bread to those that need it”.
It was a perfect idea for 2 reasons…one; it gave the bakery another way to keep their staff working after the business practically collapsed overnight, and two; We get to help people who need and want to support a local, artisan bakery!
Now we have expanded our delivery, had to create a website and ordering system to keep up, and wake up everyday with a purpose. We are blessed to have made some pretty amazing friends along the way and we continue to evolve and adapt, and let this journey take us to wherever it is meant to go. We trust in the flow, and are here with open hearts and clear minds doing our part…with love!
