September is now being renamed Sourdough September

From the 1st-30th of September the Real Bread Campaign start their initiative to get people eating and baking Sourdough, with Sourdough September.

The Real Bread Campaign are part of a charity sustain which fights for the alliance of better food and farming with the aim of giving Britain better bread.

They aim to give everyone the choice of ‘real’ bread which is made without the use of any artificial additives. They aim to find and share ways to make bread better for us.

They challenge supermarket and industrial loafs which they feel use misleading marketing to present their bread as healthy.

This goes alongside the benefits they think real bread can bring through employment opportunities. As well as social and therapeutic benefits that making bread can give people.

Sourdough September wants to give the opportunity for bakers across the UK to organise their own events and activities to help share sourdough secrets and demystify the delights of making break.

It also promotes the use of making bread with sourdough instead of using commercially produced yeast.

As part of the campaign there will be the event ‘Real Bread: The Uprising’ which will be held on the 12th September. This will be in association with SOAS.

SOAS is an organisation which is interested in the political, economic and cultural dimensions of food, historically and in the contemporary movement, from production, to exchange, to preparation, to consumption.

The event will be an all day event in the Brunei Gallery in London. The event will have an intensive list of guest speakers all involved with bread. One of these is Lizzie Fellows who is involved with Leeds Bread Co-op.

The themes of the event will look how baking bread can help mental health, community and social enterprise. How to make a business out of baking. Sourdough itself and how real bread can make a difference world wide.
