Kansas City, Missouri
This project is a “pop-up” bakery that utilizes abandoned, unused urban spaces and/or vacant lots around the Kansas City metro area. In KC, there are over 12,000 abandoned properties, and the areas with the highest concentrations of these abandoned properties also happen to be food deserts. By popping up in some of these areas, Fresh Bread will draw attention to these problems while putting high-quality bread directly into people’s hands. Each neighborhood the artist works in will have its own site-specific storefront which will emphasize the personalized nature of the project.
The prices of bread are adjusted to the average neighborhood income.
Prices vary, but nothing is currently over $5.
To date, over 400 loaves have been distributed through Fresh Bread.
