When Faith learned about Greyston's open hiring policy, benefits, and apprenticeship program, she knew what she wanted. Her relentless phone calls and persistance paid off in a full-time position in December 2001. She was then 43, a struggling single parent who had been in and out of jobs where she never felt like more than a "punch-card number." From the beginning, each learning experience and opportunity to teach others "made me feel proud," she says.

Faith thrives on challenges, from the food safety course she completed to the computer skills she is gaining. "I ask questions," says Faith, an Assistant Supervisor in Training. "I'm never afraid to ask questions.

Autumnal Gluten-Free Baking...

It’s a cool morning in Yonkers, and the smell of brownies is in the air here at Greyston Bakery. Fall has most definitely arrived- that subtly brisk air has begun to roll in and the leaves are taking this season’s namesake to heart, changing their colors and ambling down unto the ground. Here at 104 Alexander Street, us ‘Do-Gooders’ are busy baking delicious treats! We are excited because in just a matter of weeks our forthcoming Gluten-Free line of Do-Goodie treats will be rolling out on our website!

Why Gluten-Free, do you ask? For a few reasons, one being Celiac disease- a digestive condition has become increasingly present on the American conscience. The disorder, which requires a gluten-free diet, can be very difficult for diagnosed individuals to deal with. Eliminating gluten from one’s diet can be quite a lifestyle change. That said, here at Greyston Bakery, we decided it was time that we offer treats to those who cannot have gluten. So, we got our creative team together and came up with some delicious recipes for chocolate and vanilla cupcakes, chocolate chip cookies, oatmeal raisin cookies, banana bread, and banana nut muffins! And boy, are they delicious…

You can check out pictures of our new line of Gluten-Free products here- and while you’re at it, become a “Fan” of Do-Goodie on Facebook. There, you can stay up to date on all of the latest happenings here at the bakery and be informed of any specials or discounts we may offer!

Last but not least, we want to ask that you feed your conscience, feed your soul, and feed yourself…healthfully and safely. Look for Do-Goodie Gluten-Free products on your grocer’s shelf soon! And reach out to us with any and all of your thoughts if you are so inclined. You can always send us an e-mail at:!
