About Ben's Bread

Ben's Bread is a Community Supported Bakery (CSB) that focuses on fresh-made, naturally leavened hearth breads. Our operation is simple: customers place an order on our website, we make bread for them, and donate a portion of our proceeds back to the community!

We arrange a pick-up location in a central area that is easy to get to, and wait there with all of your fresh-baked, still-warm-from-the-oven loaves until you come pick them up, take them home, and devour them! Right now we offer a once-a-month pickup, but hopefully down the road we will be able to offer more.

Our CSB is comprised of a close-knit, two-person team. Ben Campbell is the baker. He is the head baker for Sea Creatures restaurant group's Amazon Spheres projects, and former head baker at Lark in Seattle, Washington. His wife, Megan Campbell, is the smart, beautiful genius that knows how to do things like bring in customers, develop a website, balance a budget, plan a business, and motivate the head baker to do his job better. Essentially, Ben makes the bread delicious, and Megan makes everything else about Ben's Bread awesome.

We try to make our bread as affordable as possible while keeping in mind that our methods are a labor of love and take up a lot of our very little free time. Additionally, we believe that it is very important to give back to our community. As a result, we donate $1 from EACH LOAF OF BREAD sold to a worthy organization.

'What is your organization of choice', you ask?

Greenplate Special is a fantastic local educational organization that gives middle school kids a full appreciation of the food cycle (growing it, cooking it, and eating it) through summer camps and after-school programs. To find out more about their programming, or go get involved, contact them here.

If you have any questions or would like to get on our mailing list, contact us at bensbreadseattle@gmail.com. We can also be found on Instagram @bensbreadseattle, on Twitter @bensbread_sea, and our Facebook page.

We hope you enjoy our bread as much as we enjoy making it for you!
