Matthew Tilden announced his D.O.U.G.H. campaign on Kickstarter to raise funds for his Bed-Stuy bakery this past summer. At the time, he was hoping to raise $25,000 by September 2 for essentials like “tables, ventilation system for wood burning oven, bread cooling racks, pastry tools, refrigeration, and especially a great set of wheels to get our stuff to those who want it.” Now, he says, all he needs is $10 from 700 people to make it happen.
Liza deGuia, the food documentarian whose short videos can be be viewed at foodcurated.com, lent her support to the baker by shooting this public-service announcement for him. If you do decide to give, your donation won’t leave you empty-handed: Each $10 gift gets you a SCRATCHbread STUYVESANT sour boule, so you can feel good and full at once.
