The UMass-affiliated Pioneer Valley Bread House (PVBH) teams up with local baker Jonathan Stevens of The Hungry Ghost to host a community bread baking event in honor of World Food Day.
Bread-lovers of all ages are invited to make and share bread with others at the generously donated kitchen space of the Congregation B'nai Israel, 253 Prospect Street, Northampton. The event is free and open to everyone. While kneading and baking bread together, guests will learn about Stevens' effort to bring grain farming back to the Pioneer Valley and the impacts this has on our food and community systems. Children and adults alike will have the opportunity to learn how to make their own bread at home and experience first-hand how bread brings people and communities together.

The PVBH was co-founded by Dr. Leda Cooks and PhD Candidate Lily Herakova, both of the UMass Department of Communication.
