Whether you enjoy our cold-pressured or raw juices rest assured you’re drinking sustainably sourced juice that’s on a mission to reduce food waste. Our founders were taught by their families to never let a scrap of food go to waste and we’re inspired by their passion to make the world a better place through business to start Good Use. More than two years later, and thousands of pounds of food saved from landfills, we continue to use creative sourcing to press delicious juice that is good for you and good for the planet, made with love in San Francisco.

Bread SRSLY believes that all food is meant to be enjoyed, no matter your allergies, aversions, or illnesses. We labored for months applying traditional sourdough techniques to a gluten-free recipe to come up with a loaf we’re proud to share with you—one with an authentic sourdough tang and great texture that will satisfy any Celiac’s toast craving, and impress gluten-eaters too.

Bread SRSLY also think food should satisfy your whole body, not just your taste buds. All of its bread is leavened with wild yeast and rises for more than 12 hours, breaking down hard-to-digest grains and making it seriously good for you. Plus, Bread SRSLY gluten-free sourdough contains a host of bioavailable nutrients, promoting digestive health and healing.
