Overview

ucie Buchbinder and Susan Phillips, specialists in subsidized housing, founded The Bread Project (TBP) to help low-income housing tenants obtain job skills training and become self-sufficient. In 2000, TBP was incorporated as a California nonprofit 501(c) (3) public benefit corporation.



After a successful beginning at the San Francisco Baking Institute in South San Francisco, in 2003 The Bread Project transferred to the East Bay, partnering with Berkeley Adult School and Oakland Unified School District Adult & Career Education. In 2010, with the generous support of Semifreddi’s Bakery and Chevron, TBP opened a new 8,000 square foot bakery facility in Emeryville to provide training and expand social enterprise efforts.



Today, The Bread Project runs a ten-week bakery production training program at our Emeryville site. Products from our social enterprises are available for purchase through Williams Sonoma. In January of 2014, TBP added a three-week intensive Bakery Bootcamp program to expand opportunities for clients with the greatest need. The bootcamp allows clients to gain exposure to all the core competencies TBP teaches in the longer session.
