    Washington's Little Free Bakeries

    Today, in lieu of Casual Friday, we’re bringing you a sweet treat from our newsroom. KUOW’s Ruby de Luna spoke to some local bakers about their efforts to create Little Free Bakeries, a spin-off of Little Free Libraries. These bakeries aren’t just for free treats, though - they’re a source of joy and community for those who bake, and those who eat. As you listen, maybe grab a snack in case you get hungry.

On this episode: stories from KUOW arts and culture reporter Mike Davis and food reporter Ruby de Luna, who reflect on their holiday family traditions.

    'Tis the season, but these Seattle area bakers offer free treats year round

    It’s that time of year when home bakers are working overtime to produce holiday treats to share. But one Seattle baker has been at it year-round to bring some sweetness to her neighborhood. Last year Magnolia resident Lanne Stauffer turned her little free library into a little free bakery. And her efforts are going strong and have inspired similar efforts around Seattle.

    Seattle is one step closer to making 'streateries' permanent

    Seattle’s “streateries” were the city’s answer to help restaurants survive the pandemic while protecting public health: the city waived permits and fees to allow businesses to use sidewalks and curbside space. Now, the city council is one step closer to making its café street program permanent.
