Since opening our doors in 1873, Stephens Bakery has been committed to donating unsold food to those that need it most in our community. What began as a modest gesture of a few rolls has evolved into a significant charity that feeds thousands of children weekly and extends substantial financial support to local initiatives, contributing thousands of pounds each month.

We are proud that we have contributed over £230,000 to local causes since our inception in 2018. Our mission is focused on promoting education and health, fostering community development, and alleviating poverty, with the goal of making a lasting positive impact on all our local communities. Another key part of the Stephens Foundation is funding Breakfast Clubs in schools, driven by our belief that every child deserves a nutritious and supportive start to their day. Currently, we support 47 Breakfast Clubs and are continuously on the lookout for more opportunities to assist.
