Together We Bake

Providing hope to previously incarcerated, homeless or migrant women in the Washington, DC area

Together We Bake helps women in difficulty develop skills to land sustainable employment in the food industry.

The participants learn about commercial food production, food safety and business administration. In addition, they attend workshops on financial literacy, life skills development, and networking.

In 2020, UNFCU Foundation's grant provided training and support program to 125 women.

Program goals:
  • Help participants find employment within 3 months of graduating from the program
  • Reach high rates of graduation and employment retention levels
  • Prevent re-incarceration of previously convicted women
