Benefit Bakes

Being a good neighbor is part of American Flatbread’s mission.  We wouldn’t be here today without the strength and support of our community. As a way of giving back, we host weekly Benefit Bakes where we donate a portion of every flatbread sold to an organization working to improve our community.  These evenings are dedicated not only to raising funds but to raising awareness around community issues and individuals.


If you have a local organization that you would like to raise awareness for and would like more information on our Benefit Bakes, please email us using the link below.
