BRICKS TO BREAD

Events & Activities

Get Involved

Thanks again for your interest in Bricks to Bread and for supporting our mission to help change the lives of women and children within the impoverished regions of Costa Rica!

We have two volunteer opportunities:

First opportunity: Volunteer during one of our semi-weekly baking days.  There are three phases to our bread baking process; preparing the dough, forming the loaves and baking.  Check out the section to the left to read more.

     Shifts:

     There are three shifts:

  1. Prepping the dough the night before
  2. Forming the loaves in the morning
  3. Baking the bread mid-day.

     Time:  Each shift takes 2-3 hours depending on the amount of bread we            bake and the temperature of the oven.

  1.  Prepping dough:  9:00pm-11:00pm the night before
  2.  Form the loaves:  9:00am-12:00noon
  3. Bake bread:  12:00noon-4:00pm

 

Second opportunity: Be a part of a Volunteer Trip Experience and travel to Costa Rica with us for 10 days and volunteer on one of our oven projects!

If you are interested in volunteering for either of these opportunities please email us, we’d be more than happy to send you more information.
