The Bakery & Store
The bakery began in 2001 when Phase 1 of the Annex was completed. The bakery currently employs one full time baker, the son of an UPAVIM woman, and a full time assistant They bake fresh bread twice daily.
All of the bread is sold at a small store that employs one woman and sells our soy milk also. The bakery and store are self-sustainable. Profit from the store and bakery go into UPAVIM´s general fund. There are no plans for expansion here at this time.
The equipment, which includes a large beater, two ovens, a dough mixer, and a baking table, was paid for by Rotary Clubs from Paso Robles and Paso Robles-Sunrise, California with additional funds from Rotary International.
