Women in southwestern India bake whole grain bread

Healthy bread opens the way to share Adventist health principles with the public.

Southern Asia Division (SUD)

[India] Since health-conscious people are trying to avoid white bread and whole grain bread is not available in the food market in southwestern India, the union Women’s Ministries leadership began a project to empower Adventist women to fill this need. Every Thursday about half a dozen women gather to make whole grain bread that is sold to the Adventist institutions in their region of North Kerala located in the Southwest India Union Section.

More and more people are asking to buy the bread. The Adventist women are willing to bake more bread and sell their healthy loaves in the public market, but they need to purchase a large, heavy duty kneading machine. To continue to grow this ministry into a thriving Women’s Ministries outreach project North Kerala, these women need additional funding.
