Shay's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped kick-start Bäckerei Provincial in providing Community Supported Bread (CSB) shares and wholesale bread to the region using Montana grown grains. It will help us buy initial inventory and start-up supplies.

Shay's story

My time traveling in a military family and volunteering in various branches of AmeriCorps took me to many places to eat and learn and eventually brought me to the Mission Valley where my family and I call home. Food has played a central theme in my personal life and locally sourced food in my professional career. I have spent the past six years increasing access to locally sourced food to public institutions and low income demographics in western Montana. My dream is to provide a community involved, regional bakery to the area.
