Food Drive in South Portland
We know this year has been tough for everyone, but it has been especially difficult for some. It can be hard to know who needs help, and how to help. That's why we're grateful for organizations like the South Portland Food Cupboard, where they are offering support, food and other essentials to those in need.
We'd like to ask you, our friends, family, and neighbors, to join us and give a little - if you can. We know it's a lot to ask, so we are going to lead the charge with a Food Drive at our South Portland Bakery, every 3rd Sunday, starting this upcoming Sunday, 3/21/21.
You can bring a lot, or a little, and we will make sure that all donations go to the Food Cupboard for distribution. You can view an updated list of items that would be most helpful at SouthPortlandFoodCupboard.ORG
If you have any questions or would like more information, feel free to reach out to us at 207-536-7713, or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Sunday Funday in South Portland! Sunday, February 28th will be the first Sunday open at our South Portland location since early 2020 and we are celebrating by sharing a free slice of our special Sunday Funday Slab Cake - only one per customer, but all our other fresh baked treats will also be available.
New Hours Starting March 2nd! The days are getting longer, warmer weather is right around the corner, and we are gearing up for a fun-filled season. Starting things off, Two Fat Cats Bakery is extending hours at both locations starting Tuesday 3/2, from 8am - 4pm, and Sundays in South Portland from 9am -2pm.
Back Baking & Better Than Ever! We’re beyond thrilled to open our doors again and welcome everyone back starting Tuesday 2/2! Lancaster St. and South Portland will be back open for takeout and preorder pickup, 8am - 3pm, Tuesday - Saturday.
February is packed with a lot to celebrate and we’re looking forward to all of them!
Celebrate Black History Month: We are SO excited to partner with Print: A Bookstore & Nonesuch Books & More to celebrate Black History Month! We will have a display of books by famous Black American authors at both locations available for purchase.
Join us as we celebrate & salute the voices of Black American authors by sharing the stories that have inspired, informed, & illuminated our worlds.
With our “Baking That Matters” program, we chose organizations with unique or underrepresented voices. So, for Black History Month, we want to continue that effort to elevate stories, voices and viewpoints through our craft and in partnership with other businesses that are community minded.
Our special author-inspired decorated shortbread cookies are our way of paying tribute to the power of storytelling, and the significance it has in our lives. We will have the following titles available for purchase at both locations throughout February:
I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings, by Maya Angelou
The Color Purple, by Alice Walker
Hitting a Straight Lick with a Crooked Stick: Stories from the Harlem Renaissance, by Zora Neale Hurston
Two Fat Cats Bakery is going places! After 15 years at India St., our bakery has grown and we have moved to 195 Lancaster St., in the Bayside neighborhood of Portland, Maine. We are very excited to have such a bright and beautiful location to share with everyone soon - take out is available but we are not currently offering dine-in service. We do have dedicated customer parking to make it easy to get all your favorite sweet treats from Two Fat Cats Bakery!
