New Skills, New Lives


The Bread Project in the San Francisco Bay Area is a Rex grantee working to provide job skills in the culinary field to adults who have trouble finding work–and along the way, life skills to help them achieve the goals they once thought impossible. The program’s been so successful that the Project has been forced to turn many eligible students away, but an upcoming expansion to larger headquarters will allow it to train even more.

Recently we heard from Bread Project Executive Director Dagmar Schroeder-Huse, who shared a few of the program’s success stories. We were delighted to read them–and happy to share this example of the good work the Rex community makes possible.
