I work in a CA state prison. I stumbled onto Dave’s Bread finding it to be the first wheat bread I liked. I was concerned about the “killer” part of the name, once I noticed it.

Thank you for the story. So sorry to hear of Dave’s current situation. Will be praying for him because only God can bring peace to the torment he’s in.
Hat’s off to his family, especially Glenn.

I truly hope Dave can find some peace in his life. My heart goes out to him and his family. I am a huge fan of their bread products and wish the family all the best.

Glory to God that Dave has been introduced to the loving God of second chances. Dave, cling the the strong tower! May our Heavenly Father’s Shalom be upon Dave, his family and their business. Numbers 6: 24-26

Fantastic bread toasted or un-toaster. There is one problem I have…I can and do just eat multiple slices as if they were a treat! In one word…yum!
