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 March 2022, our 850 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. 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.


News coverage of the project is available via the Philadelphia Inquirer, the Philadelphia Citizen, CBS3 Philadelphia, and Edible Philly.
