Community is the heart of our bakery.

We believe that being successful means being a good neighbor and a good steward of the environment. That's why we partner with so many worthwhile organizations—donating our time, our products and our expertise.

We are especially proud of our work with those who normally would not have an opportunity to learn new skills, including formerly homeless and recently paroled Philadelphians. We believe that job training is key to fighting poverty and homelessness.

In addition, supporting local growers, local food movements and the "shop local" movement are causes that have been of paramount importance to us for 20 years.

Please join us in supporting our partners:
