About Us

We are Big River Bakery based in Shieldfield – Newcastle and we believe we can change the world one loaf at a time but need your help.

We run a baking and barista themed employability programme for local people furthest from the job market and also provide employment for people with learning disabilities – such as autism.

During the covid 19 epidemic we have been collaborating with local community and charity groups to run an emergency food parcel distribution service from the bakery premises to those most in need and have also produced baking activity packs for children and families.
