The Falkirk kitchen worker, who does not want to be named, has used his skills to bake bread for people in the community and set up a Facebook page called Bread Matters which will allow people to get in touch with him with orders for bread.

Bread Man stated: “I now have a freezer full of bread and over the weekend will be looking to get rid of as much as possible. If anyone needs or knows of anyone who needs a loaf of bread please get in touch.

“I will try my best to get the bread to them as quickly as possible.”

The mystery Bread Man has been using his skills to deliver fresh loafs to the community

The limelight ducking culinary superhero, who is not seeking any praise for his actions, first realised he was in a position to help people when he visited his local supermarket.

He said: “While waiting in the queue at Lidl, I heard an old fella ask the cashier when they would next get bread in as he hadn't been able to get in early enough to get some. By a stroke of luck I happened to have two loafs in the car which he was delighted to take off my hands.”

Bread Man’s mission is to help the elderly and those most vulnerable in the current pandemic and when he witnessed first hand the state of the shelves of the local stores he knew it was in his power to assist.

Locked away in his secret lair he is baking between 50 and 60 loafs of bread a week.

Bread Man’s only weakness – his Kryptonite – is flour.

When he runs out of this raw material he cannot make his super tasty loaves.

Every hero needs a little help some times, so he would be glad of any donations of flour so he can continue to bake his bread.
