Overview

Lucie 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 8000 square foot bakery facility in Emeryville to provide training and expand social enterprise efforts. In 2015 TBP moved to a new facility in Berkeley due to skyrocketing rents. The new location is zoned for both commercial and retail. Today The Bread Project runs an award winning three week bakery bootcamp training program at our Berkeley site. Products from our social enterprises are available for purchase through Williams Sonoma.
