Lovin’ Oven Corporation is a crowdfunded, IRS recognized 501(c)3, not-for-profit entity whose sole purpose is to share bread with others. Its first project will be Burning Knead, a food truck outfitted for bread baking. Lovin’ Oven will crowdsource the costs to operate the vehicle for storage, required fuels, insurances, kitchen supplies and ingredients with the initial goal of having 100 bakes over a two-year period. One hundred bakes will result in the sharing of bread with approximately 100,000 people. Funds and the vehicle will be used solely to bake flatbread for gifting or to otherwise fundraise for Lovin’ Oven operations.
Cooking and gifting will include all people on both sides of the counter, from all walks of life, because the act of gifting and receiving gifts is not limited to just the haves and have nots. The goodness of giving or receiving is applicable to everyone. It has lasting positive effects that we hope will create goodness-ripples and warm conversations throughout communities. We intend to create an environment where certain positive principles can be communicated, shared, and deployed both on the baking and gifting sides.
