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 two woman and also sells our soy milk and other soy products. The bakery and store are self-sustainable. The profits from the bakery and soy are used to support the school.
The equipment, which includes large mixers, 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.
