A cohort of Texas bakers has organized another Bakers Against Racism fundraiser that is taking place this week to raise money for social justice organizations in the state.
Fueled by a one-ton flour donation from Barton Springs Mill in Dripping Springs, bakers in Austin, Houston and San Antonio are taking orders this week for baked goods that they’ll deliver or ship this weekend.
It’s not too late to sign up if you want to participate, and each baker gets to decide which organization to support. Go to instagram.com/txbakersagainstracism to find out more or search the #txbakersagainstracism hasghtag on Instagram.
