In Vytach bakery in Kyiv Oblast, craft bread in a wood stove is baked using ancient recipes. The Sobko family opened the bakery on the eve of the war. Now they bake sourdough bread for the Armed Forces. People who come here buy bread and donate to various initiatives. Thanks to this, business owners organize art and solidarity events.
Vytach bakery is a member of the Network to Protect the Cultural Heritage of Ukraine through a Solidarity Economy, which was created with assistance from the USAID Economic Resilience Activity (ERA). The network promotes cooperation between local businesses and helps to implement joint volunteer projects.
