The Madison community is invited to celebrate a new storefront partnership between Just Bakery and Porchlight Products. The new storefront location will host a grand opening party on Saturday, March 10th from 11am-1pm. Customers can pick up and enjoy bakery essentials like danishes, muffins, cookies, brownies, cheddar rolls, coffee cakes, biscotti, sweet and savory specialty breads and more. Just Bakery’s new location has also offered a natural opportunity for partnership with their neighbor, Porchlight Products. After perusing Just Bakery’s delicious product list, visiting customers will also be able to purchase Porchlight favorites which include scone and pancake mixes, apple butter, jams and jellies, dilly beans and curtido.
Founded in 2013, many know Just Bakery as an employment training program within Madison Urban Ministries or as a United Way of Dane County HIRE Education Employment Initiative. Since its inception, Just Bakery has been building career pathways for individuals with barriers to employment such as criminal conviction history, homelessness, lack of skills or education, or history of incarceration.
Porchlight Products is part of Porchlight, Inc. and provides job training and life skills to individuals with a wide range of disabilities, partnering with local farmers and producers to create a self-sustaining program for all.
All sales from Just Bakery and Porchlight Products are reinvested in their programming.
