Hot Bread Kitchen

I have joined the board of Hot Bread Kitchen and am absolutely thrilled.  I love what this company is doing.  Conceptually if the profit end of the business can fund the non-profit end down the line, this company can be sustainable without ever having to raise another dime.  A win win at every angle.  A bakery that enhances the future of women.  I love that.  HBK could potentially be rolled out into cities across the country or even across the world.  What a wonderful way to integrate the immigration population into a community that they have chosen to start a new life.

    Hi GothamGal – this is amazing. Is there anyway to get involved?

    1. Gotham Gal

      Take a look on their website. There are probably more opportunities than wecan handle at this point. Donations are always good but I am hoping for theprofit end to come up quickly in order that the non-profit won’t need toraise any funds.
