Bakers trapped inside due to Hurricane Harvey made free bread for flood victims

In the end, the four co-workers spent two days trapped in the facility.

Since the bakery, which specializes in Mexican cakes and pan dulce sweet bread, was dry and still had electricity, the four men made a decision to work through the night and day after to bake bread for those whose lives had been devastated by the storm that caused catastrophic flooding in the city.

In the two days they were trapped in the bakery due to the roads surrounding them being inundated with water, they used about 4,200 pounds of flour.

The bread from the workers' marathon baking session was delivered to various shelters and a police station nearby.

"They started making bread and Saturday night it rained so bad that they got trapped", owner Kirk Michaelis told USA Today.

The crew was stranded at the bakery from Saturday (26 August) afternoon to Monday (28 August) afternoon, according to USA Today. The bread was later taken to feed hungry evacuees at emergency centers. But rather than pen secret missives on fortunes, they chose to spend the next two days madly baking the delicious Mexican sweet breads, to give to flood victims.

To the bakers at El Bolilo Bakery - we salute you.

Employees at the bakery had been working non-stop since Friday to provide food for those affected by the flooding, according to the Chronicle, and continued Sunday after they ran out of bread and had to close the store. "We were not expecting to come in here and see every single display case full of bread".

On social media, the bakery notified people it would be closed until further notice.

"That's when we took the image and they had made so much bread", Alvarado said. They baked! And then they baked some more. "This goes to our employees who lost cars, homes, and valuables to help rebuild their lives", reads the fundraising page, which has already raised over $5,000 since Wednesday. And we aren't just talking about a few loaves.
