The Friendship Circle "Pop-Up" Bakery

Mission 

The mission of The Friendship Circle Pop Up Bakery is to provide an employment opportunity for our adult members in which they are able to develop, enhance, and market their baking skills while interfacing with community members. We aim to provide adult participants with an opportunity to gain workplace skills, earn a fair wage, and experience a sense of independence that a job can bring, all in an accessible space with the necessary supports. Friendship Circle members will work alongside community participants to produce quality and appealing items and to sustain the initiative. 

Vision 

The Vision of the Friendship Circle Pop Up Bakery is to allow members to independently and intentionally develop their baking skills under the direction of a professional lead pastry chef, while simultaneously sharing and demonstrating our mission. The Pop Up Bakery will create an environment in which Friendship Circle members and community participants are working together to build a more inclusive community.
