About the Project
The InKind Baking Project started in Philadelphia in January 2017. Prompted by the turmoil of current events and the targeting of various communities, bakers from all over the city volunteered to bake for their neighbors as a sign of welcome, community, and solidarity. As of January 2020, our 656 bakers (and counting) have baked for over 43,000 people, including birthday cakes for families staying in a homeless shelter, cookies for refugees, cupcakes for ESL classes, muffins for immigration clinics, and more. News coverage of the project is available via the Philadelphia Inquirer, the Philadelphia Citizen, CBS3 Philadelphia, and Edible Philly. Our project bakers range from enthusiastic amateur to all-but-professional, and we are happy to consider requests from both individuals and organizations for donations in-kind and in kindness.

BAKE FOR THE PROJECT
We can always use more bakers! Whether you are a professional or an enthusiast, we would love to have you. Join our listserv, find out about upcoming requests, and bake as often or as sparingly as your schedule allows.
(Note: Our geography will expand as our network grows, but we are currently most active within the City of Philadelphia.)
