I find myself often thinking about my goals, where I want to be, what I want, my needs. It’s always an afterthought when I think about helping someone else. I used to volunteer quite a bit, and when I was studying at Cordon Bleu I would donate my cakes to a local shelter. However I never thought that being a pastry chef could put me in a position where I’m able to make a difference. I would like to shed some light on a terrific organization, led by Bourke street bakery.
They started a separate bakery, who like Bourke street delivers bread all over Sydney. The Bread and Butter project provides employment for refugees and communities in need. It gives them the skills needed to become an artisanal bread baker, oh and did I mention that 100% of the profits from bread sold go directly back in to helping train more and more people.
I’m so impressed with what this company has accomplished. Reminding me that knowledge is to be passed down, and not hoarded. That the best way to show gratitude for what you have is to give back.
