Greyson Bakery is a force for personal transformation and community economic renewal. We operate a profitable business, baking high quality products with a commitment to customer satisfaction. Grounded in a philosophy that we call PathMaking, we create jobs and provide integrated programs for individuals and their families to move forward on their path to self-sufficiency.  From the Greyson Bakery website

"The bakery hires, trains, and houses people who were homeless, ex-convicts, drug addicts, on welfare, battered wives, or illiterate --all well trodden paths to despair.

"Tutored in skills like baking, the bakeries workers have a solid livelihood. The bakery supplies a vast amount of brownies daily to Ben & Jerry's ice cream factory in Vermont, where they are mixed into flavors like chocolate fudge Brownie. The company's motto: quotation mark we don't hire people to bake brownies; we bake brownies to hire people." From a Force for Good by Daniel Goleman
