So you wanna be a
Good Bitches Baking is all about spreading a bit of sweetness in our community. We aim to give a moment of happiness to people going through a tough time.
Anyone can be a Good Bitch – it’s a very admiring and gender-inclusive term. Good Bitches are people who want to help those in their community who are having a tough time. You don’t have to be a master baker, because it’s the kindness in your intentions that matters more than the final product.
Have a look here to see if there's a Chapter in your area.
And here is everything else you need to know to decide if being a Good Bitch is right for you.
so what's involved?
Good Bitches can bake or deliver baking, or both. How often is up to you, but we usually roster people on to bake about twice a month and/or deliver once a month. To join you’ll need to commit to baking or delivering at least once per month.
If you’re a baker you’ll need to supply your own ingredients, but we’ll provide a cake box to put in it and ingredients flyers so you can note what's in your treats and add a sweet note as well. This is so that recipients know that the baking is from a real person not a business, and to make sure we don’t accidentally cause an allergic reaction.
If you’re a driver you’ll need to have your own car and pay for petrol. Usually drivers pick up from 4-6 bakers and drop off to 2 locations. We try really hard to roster your pick-ups in nearby suburbs.
when do we bake? and what...?
Lots of the baking is done at the weekends and picked up on a Sunday, usually from your house. Some recipients like to get baking during the week - there are options to fit most people's schedules.
Some chapters have drivers who pick up and deliver the baking and some chapters just do 'bake and drop'. Being a driver is another way to be a Good Bitch - maybe that sounds like your jam...
All baking is well received. You can decide what to bake and how much - you don't need to be a patisserie chef or have a big budget. The only common ingredient is care for the people you're baking for and all our Good Bitches put lots of this into everything they're baking.
who is the baking for?
Our purpose is to give a moment of sweetness to people having a tough time., so we deliver baking to organisations that work with or support groups of people who need some kindness. We don’t judge why they are in that situation.
Our recipients include boarding houses, homeless shelters, soup kitchens, food banks, hospital wards, hospices, refuges, mental health support services, and many more.
We’re always adding more recipients, so if you know of an organisation that might like what we do, please let us know.
