At Bourke Street Bakery we believe that engaging with the community is a two way street. Beyond making great bread, pies and tarts, we do our little bit of good for the world around us too.
MORE THAN A BAKERY
Here are just a few ways we are rolling up our sleeves and working hard at making a difference:
The Bread & Butter Project
Bourke Street Bakery’s biggest community effort has been to dream up and implement The Bread & Butter Project – Australia’s first social enterprise bakery.
We dedicated our wholesale potential to start this exciting venture, which has been operating since 2013. An entirely separate entity to us, The Bread & Butter Project has DGR status and a board of directors. Bourke Street Bakery have devoted themselves tirelessly and voluntarily to make The Bread & Butter Project a success. One hundred per cent of the profits are reinvested into improving the lives of those least privileged in our community through an onsite TAFE accredited, paid training program for refugees and asylum seekers.

Bourke Street Bakery is also committed to environmental sustainability. We’ve installed enormous silos to store our flour supplies, so there’s no more flour packaging or carbon-intensive road trucks hauling in our flour each week. Up on our roof at HQ, you’ll find our five busy bee hives which produce all the honey for our bakeries and the main production facility uses a ‘Closed Loop’ Organics 24hr Composter for all food scraps.
We donate our leftover stock to local food charities such as Ozharvest, Asylum Seekers & Wayside Chapel.
