February “Pop-Up” Bakery

In February 2020, we introduced an exciting project designed to pilot new employment opportunities for our adult members. Through the FC Popup Bakery, members were trained in various baking roles and worked together to fill orders from the community. Eleven of our adult members participated as bakers and received training in a number of baking roles by a local baker and partner, Tammy Berkowitz. Our bakers worked in the kitchen, packaged the baked goods, and sold bakery items to the community. We welcomed 15 community volunteers who also worked in the bakery, and overall, we sold 350 cookies! It was a fantastic pilot year and one we are excited to replicate.

The Eighth refers to the day on which, after the seven days of inauguration, Aaron, the high priest of… Read More
