We love CoachArt

If you’ve checked out our Charity of the Month feature, then you know this month’s charity is CoachArt.  We’re so excited to be working with CoachArt, and if you haven’t already seen it, CoachArt clients will be attending our Baking Around the World launch party!! Even better – we’ll be donating 10% of all sales made from books at the party to the organization.

We’re Loving Homegirl Café

We recently learned of Homegirl Café, a phenomenal social enterprise that targets those who are at-risk and/or formerly involved with gang life.  The men and women are trained to become contributing members of society through training in the restaurant service and culinary arts industries.

Homegirl Café offers a one year training program within the food and service industry, in order to empower young people and change their lives.
