Baking Through Barriers

Help for Today. Hope for Tomorrow.

1 in 4 people in the San Francisco Bay area live in poverty. Without connecting to work, they rely on government assistance and experience or are at risk of homelessness throughout adulthood.

The Bread Project has a vision for all motivated individuals to be able to contribute to a stronger community through stable, gainful and fulfilling work. We leverage the power of social enterprise with training, job placement assistance and support services to lead individuals out of poverty.

Our Impact

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