Breaking Through Barriers

Help for Today. Hope for Tomorrow.

California is a world leader in incarceration rates with 581 individuals per 100,000. More than 325,000 Californians are currently on parole or probation and the recidivism rate is 46%.

The Bread Project has a vision for all reentry and justice-involved individuals to be able to contribute to a stronger community through stable, gainful, and fulfilling work. We leverage the power of food prep and baking training, and job placement assistance, to support the integration of these men and women into society

Our Impact

Since 2000, we have been dedicated to changing the trajectory of the lives of individuals with high barriers to employment, putting them on a path toward economic opportunity and a living wage.
