Blue Sky Bakery

Through its bakery and café in Chicago, Blue Sky Bakery provides homeless and at-risk youth with 12 weeks of paid, supportive employment. These teens earn far more than a paycheck, though, as they build experience in cooking, baking, maintaining a sanitary work environment, and providing customer service. They also get resume assistance, job preparation, and long-term employment support that enables them to develop a path to self-sufficiency.

Packed with Purpose customers have the opportunity to select Blue Sky’s indulgent maple cashew granola or sweet & spicy nuts, with the knowledge that your purchase helps youth in need transform their lives for the better.
