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.

A Greyston Pizza Party (sans Gluten)

If you’re reading this post, you’re likely aware of Greyston Bakery’s latest culinary endeavor: gluten-free baked goods! We will have a
delicious selection of desert treats available at our online
Gluten-Free Shop any day now—including chocolate chip cookies, oatmeal raisin cookies, banana nut muffins and banana bread (chocolate and vanilla cupcakes coming soon!) Along with these newly launched Do-Goodie treats, we have a few additional products in the gluten-free family of Do-Goodies nearly ready to hit shelves. The one I’d like to tell you about today may not be sweet, but boy is it savory. I’m
talking about our forthcoming gluten-free pizza dough. Some of us here at the bakery were lucky enough to get a tasting of the fine epicurean efforts of our own Gluten-Free Guru Judith Mann (who you may know as Judith of Good JuJu Bakery)— who whipped up a number of personal-sized pizzas for us yesterday. The pizza was fantastic! If I wasn’t told the dough was free of gluten, I would have never guessed it was anything out of the ordinary. The thin crusted pie was delicious- I found myself sneaking a slice every few minutes I could duck away from my desk. Look out for this pizza dough on our web store soon! Take care, now.
