From their web site:
Greyston bakes brownies to hire people. They have an open door hiring policy that is a gateway to training and work:
“Anyone that comes to the front door of our bakery is given the chance to work, no questions asked. When a job becomes available we hire the next person on our waiting list. During the apprenticeship period, our employees learn baking and employment readiness skills. Greyston provides resources, personal development tools and training in professional skills.”
In addition to jobs and training, Greyston programs include childcare, housing, and community gardens.
