In the morning our students fill our Bakery wearing their bakery shirts and hats, ready to begin baking under the instruction of Feed Me Hope Bakery Manager Daja, our first Feed Me Hope Bakery graduate from 2016.
In the late morning to the later afternoon students attend Life Skills, Job Skills, and Spiritual Growth classes. All of these classes teach our students how to heal from past hurts and move forward into their future.
Feed Me Hope Bakery is a job training program available to women. The Bakery Program helps women who have experienced trauma involving men transition back into a work environment near men, but not directly working alongside them.
Students learn everything from basic food preparation and food safety to intricate piping techniques. They gain experience catering for events and fundraisers, as well as fill daily orders and produce baked goods and pastries at mass production level for our Feed Me Hope Food Truck. We have seen a remarkable transformation in the lives of our students as they begin to walk into their healthy futures.
