Greyston has recently begun a campaign on Indiegogo to raise funds to support the expansion of the bakery, bring in new equipment and hire more people. There are some great perks from the campaign including lunch with Ben & Jerry - for the highest level!
Greyston is known for our signature quote, “We don’t hire people to bake brownies, we bake brownies so we can hire people.” For over 30 years, Greyston has lived this reality and that’s why we are Bakers on a Mission.
They are simply the best brownies in the world! Greyston produces 30,000 lbs of brownies every day for Ben & Jerry's ice cream - that's right, 30,000 lbs!
The Bakery provides jobs to our community’s most disenfranchised members - the homeless and people who have a history of incarceration and/or substance abuse. Jobs are available to anyone who enrolls and demonstrates a willingness to work. There are NO background checks or pre-screening requirements, and as a result, the Bakery is able to reach our community’s neediest and provide them with jobs, skills training and comprehensive resources for personal and professional growth.
Check out their campaign here.
Donation perks start at $25, but any amount will be appreciated!
