The bread of Bread 'N' Boards 2018


November 29, 2018

Since the inception of the Sears Trostel Bread 'N' Boards annual fundraiser in 2005, the 'bread' in Bread 'N' Boards has always been Great Harvest Bread.

The Great Harvest mission fits perfectly with what Bread ’N’ Boards is all about. “BE loose and have FUN! Bake phenomenal bread. Run fast to serve others. & GIVE generously.” Both Bread 'N' Boards and Great Harvest are about blending simple, natural ingredients to create something for the good.

As the event has grown, so has the committment of Great Harvest of Fort Collins and its owner, Julie Damschroder. She has remained a steadfast sponsor, giving much from a financial perspective, as well as being the one to personally supply and serve bread samples at the event. Every board sold since 2005 has gone home with a certificate for a FREE loaf of bread.

Help us say THANKS by stopping by the two Fort Collins locations and take home some of the BEST bread you’ll ever taste. Great Harvest is ready to make your holiday preparations easier!

Our other dedicated Bread ’N’ Boards sponsor, New Belgium Brewing Co., each year brings fun custom silkscreened Tea Towels to the event, which are a great compliment to the boards for gift-giving. Be sure to stop by their table at Bread ’N’ Boards, and also check-out New Belgium’s latest offerings at its brewery on Linden Ave.

Other local business supporters help make this a great event by contributing items for the Signature Board Silent Auction. Be sure to check out and bid on items from:


The Cupboard



Deli Works





Downtown ACE Hardware



Spoons Soups, Salads & Sandwiches





The Fox & The Crow
