This past Wednesday, a couple of us put together a feast for the students and staff to show our appreciation for what everyone brings to the program and to make sure everyone could have a Thanksgiving meal. The only charge before digging in: everyone had to go around the room and say what they were thankful for.
Just Bakery as a whole is thankful for the ongoing support we receive from the community. Thank you for continuing to support our mission. The Just Bakery program reaches a lot of people in a meaningful way and we would not be able to do that without you!
Please enjoy some pictures and what our staff and students responded!
