COMMUNITY SUPPORT
At Great Harvest Bread Company, our favorite line of our mission statement is "Give Generously to Others!". We welcome opportunities to share our bread and serve our local communities. We gladly donate to non-profit organizations. We donate bread and rolls for events, beautiful gift baskets for fundraising auctions, free loaf certificates to thank volunteers, and free cookie certificates to reward students.

 Eight Great Reasons to Go on a Great Harvest Tour:
  1. Eat some of our delicious bread, fresh out of the oven!
  2. Find out the five simple ingredients that go into our bread. 
  3. One of the ingredients is actually alive . . . and you'll get to see it!Learn where our wheat kernels come from.
  4. See how we grind wheat kernels into fresh-ground flour every day.
  5. Feel how our flour is different than the flour you have at home.
  6. Gaze upon the biggest mixer and mixing bowls you've ever seen!
  7. Knead your own dough.
  8. Peek inside our huge oven. Can you guess how many loaves it can bake at a time?
We love it when parents tell us that Great Harvest bread is the only whole grain bread their kids will eat. 
It's the greatest compliment. Kids are among our greatest fans.

Still, some kids need a jump start when it comes to changing their eating habits. 
Here are some ideas that will get your kids going with the grain in no time!

- Gradually make the switch. When making sandwiches, sneak in a slice of Honey Whole Wheat on the bottom while keeping a slice of 
Old-Fashioned White on the top. Then, make it fun! Use cookie cutters to stamp out fun, bite-sized shapes.

- Make whole grains (even more) delicious. Make French toast with any Great Harvest whole grain bread. 

- Try a few of the specialty whole grain breads. 
Your kids will have a hard time turning down apples, nuts, cinnamon chips and/or berries even though they're in whole grain bread.

- Let your kids decide what they'll eat. The trick here is for parents to narrow the field down to healthy options their kids can choose between. For example, have them decide between Honey Whole Wheat or Sunflower Whole Wheat bread.

- Show them why whole grain is better. One of our favorite lessons comes from William Sears, author of the Family Nutrition Book. He suggests taking your child to the supermarket. Have them hold a loaf of white bread in one hand and a loaf of Great Harvest whole grain bread in the other. Then tell them, in Dr. Sears' , "The white bread is air bread. Whole grain is heavier because it's 'muscle bread'."
