We have revived our fresh home-baked bread on Saturdays,
hot from oven (420F then 370F, internal temp 204F; Covid dead at 177F) into white bags, and then
double bagged into brown kraft bags.
Happy to set aside your favorite flavor.
We can also custom bake for you on Tuesdays and Thursdays, usual days for baking for the Food Shelf. Please order the day before.

The pandemic shut us down completely March 15 to May 15.
We reorganized, and reopened June 1, per GovScott’s guidelines.
My brother in Chicago was in an ICU for two weeks with Covid19, and
is still on oxygen after two weeks at home.
My nephew spent the month of April as a doctor on an ICU in Arizona, with mostly Covid19 patients.
We take it seriously, and hope you will if you come visit the Tempest for books or DVD rentals or anything else. Every action to slow the pandemic brings us treatment improved, lives saved, testing increased and improved, vaccines built, and hope for a better world.
