Reproduced from an email outreach I received from a local shul

One of the largest bread producing corporations / distributors in the US is Bimbo Bakeries ( https://www.bimbobakeriesusa.com/brands ) -- see that link to understand just how many bread companies are under their umbrella. Based on innocent business decisions, they've chosen to move away from having many of their nationally distributed breads/buns certified as Kosher.
 
The most effective way to change this is for as many people as possible across the USA to reach out to Bimbo Bakeries and tell them how they have been negatively impacted by a lack of readily available Kosher breads/buns.  We need a groundswell of people to call/email Bimbo Bakeries in order for them to understand our concerns.
 
Please take a minute to call/email Bimbo Bakeries.
 
Here is the contact information for the consumer hotline at Bimbo Bakeries:
 
Phone: 1-800-984-0989
 
Please let Bimbo Bakeries know that you have been negatively impacted by a lack of readily available Kosher breads/buns -- and that you would be eager to purchase their products if they were Kosher certified.
 
Please share with your community.

According to The Jewish Press (however reliable that is) Thomas, Entenmann’s, Arnold Rye Bread, & Levy’s Rye Bread are going to remain kosher. If Entenmann’s lost their hashgacha, I might actually cry.

I would say at least 1/4 of the Entenman products don't have hashgacha now.

Yea, I saw that, but I'd rather everything remain certified, even if we'll get to keep our beloved donuts.
