Macrina Bakery will sell Brown Sugar Shortbread cookies decorated with the Ukrainian flag from March 21-27. All proceeds will help a bakery in Kyiv, Ukraine called Bakehouse to continue to give away free bread. In peacetime, 1500 people walked through the doors at Bakehouse to buy bread and pastries. The spacious, light-filled bakery employed 80 bakers. It’s one of Ukraine’s most renowned bakeries. Now, as Russian bombs fall on Kyiv, the Bakehouse’s large windows make it too dangerous to occupy. But Ukrainians who have been unable to flee must still be fed. So many of the Bakehouse bakers have decamped to a basement bakery where they continue to bake bread for hundreds of people every day. They’re giving it all away for free. Proof, a bakery in Mesa, Arizona, has organized a fundraiser for Bakehouse, partnering with bakers worldwide on a campaign called Bake for Ukraine. Macrina Bakery is honored to be able to help. For the week of March 21-March 27, we will donate all proceeds from our Brown Sugar Shortbread cookies decorated with the Ukrainian flag to the fundraiser for Bakehouse. In addition, Macrina will also match any employee donations. Anyone who wishes to donate directly can do so via the GoFundMe page.
