The scheme will also be made available to NHS and social care staff through a 24-hour ‘contactless’ pick up point at its bakery unit in Marriot Close, Norwich.
In a message posted on its website, the bakery said: “We will look to roll out the Bread Source National Loaf Scheme to all those facing hardship and isolation for £1 a loaf.
“Steve and the team are baking these loaves in their free time, and going forwards, are looking to work with other bakeries and suppliers to roll this out across East Anglia and the UK.”
