Know Your Baker

Neighbourhood bakers play a hugely positive role in their communities. One that goes far beyond basic nourishment. Their stories deserve to be heard.

The Rise Up! Podcast is a celebration of bakers, the bakeries they create and the people they serve.

Join Mark Dyck as he talks with bakers and bakery owners from across North America and around the world. Hear about their struggles and triumphs and learn about the satisfaction that feeding a community can provide.

Mo Cheeks is a community activist with a love of great bread. And he's figured out a way to marry these two important parts of his life into something way bigger than himself. In a few short months, Mo has people around the country sharing his ideas and clamouring for his bread.

In this episode, Mark and Mo talk about how Bread & Justice was a newsletter before a bakery, how he increased his impact beyond the bread he can bake in a night, and how the world needs both more bread AND more justice.
