CAPITOL JILL BAKING
A neighborhood sourdough microbakery and workshop
in the heart of Washington DC
Meet your baker
Like many others, I turned to sourdough baking to pass the time as the COVID pandemic swept across the globe. It was cathartic, and nothing brought me more joy than seeing friends and family cherishing my bread, especially when close contact wasn't possible.
Thousands of loaves later, I started Capitol Jill Baking to share my bread with neighbors and do a little good for the community. In that spirit, proceeds from each weekly bake are donated to local nonprofit organizations. To date, the CJB community has supported close to 30 local organizations, including Access Youth, ONE DC, School Justice Project, Sasha Bruce Youthwork, Dreaming Out Loud, Voices For A Second Chance, Reach Incorporated...and I can't wait to add more to the list.
Thank you for your support! It's my honor to be baking for you.
