We are a community kitchen that provides free baking and pastry training for individuals with barriers to employment. Students learn with us for 14-weeks, starting with the creaming method and how to make the perfect chocolate chip cookie - all the way to laminated pastries like croissants and danish! After graduation we help place graduates in baking and pastry jobs. We work with several non-profits to recruit students, and work with several bakeries, dessert shops and grocery stores to place graduates in jobs. We fund the program by selling our own pastry products and also by applying for grants and getting sponsorships! We are a social enterprise, so we try to earn a lot of the money ourselves.
