About The Baking Notification Project

The Baking Notification Project connects hobby bakers with their neighbors to solve a specific hobby baker problem: we love to bake, but we can’t eat it all.

Subscribers get text message notifications when a baker in their neighborhood has a few extra hot cinnamon rolls or fresh baked chocolate chip cookies to share.
