Wakefield bakery taking part in Morrisons-backed charity scheme

05 February 2024

A bakery in Wakefield has been an integral part in helping families in the local area through the cost of living crisis as part of a Morrisons-backed ‘The Bread And Butter Thing’ charity scheme.

Using completely edible surplus stock caused by factors such as imperfections or mis-labelling, Morrisons has provided over 2,600 tonnes of food to thousands of families across the UK that may otherwise have been wasted.

Wakefield based Rathbones Bakery has provided over 12 tonnes of bakery delights - the equivalent of 15,000 rolls - including loaves, crumpets and scotch pancakes.

Mark Game, CEO of The Bread and Butter Thing, said: "Morrisons has been one of our staunchest supporters, working alongside The Bread and Butter Thing since its inception. We are delighted and grateful that Morrisons teams across the country are doing everything they can to support our members.”
