The American Bakers Association (ABA), will celebrate the bread community in partnership with the Tiptree World Bread Award Heroes. The 2020 awards will recognize the people behind the baked goods: the bakers, millers, farmers and others in the industry who are going above and beyond to help their community.

“Bakery has a rich history in America, as both a staple in the American diet and as a multi-billion dollar industry” said Katie Juhl, marketing and communications director at ABA. “We are excited to recognize and celebrate the generosity of those in baking community who have stepped up during these challenging times.

Submit a story of a Bread Hero’s impact on their community, their reach, how they have innovated, their generosity of spirit or their care for the wellbeing of others.
