A Million Loaves?

Detroit Free Press, April 9, 1932
During the Great Depression Eloise was a main provider of bread for Detroit's Welfare Stations. In 1932 they were producing 800 loaves daily. Which was knocked up to 3,000 loaves daily starting in April. Since the depression lasted another 7 years it's safe to assume that the production level stayed within those two ranges. Meaning that anywhere from around 300,000 to over a million loaves were baked annually. Quite impressive.
