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.

Holidays are on their way!

Ahh, November…a month of transition from beautiful fall foliage into cheery winter serenity. The increasingly cold air hasn’t slowed the brownie artisans here at Greyston Bakery, however. We continue to bake brownies— and now Gluten-Free Do-Goodies— with love and with care. And let me tell you…the new Gluten-Free treats really do taste just like you remember! In this joyous time of year, we are all able to keep ourselves and our hearts warm by spending time with friends and loved ones or sitting next to a warm fire. It’s a time when letting others know how much you care couldn’t be more fitting, and giving couldn’t be timelier.

Well, anticipation of this year’s Holiday season is certainly beginning to mount—it’s just around the corner! In light of this, we folks at the bakery wanted to take a moment to ask what you planned on doing differently during this holiday season. In these troubled economic times, it may very well be that the most thoughtful of gifts are exchanged between friends and loved ones. Giving a gift with sincere meaning cannot be underestimated. Enjoy your week!
