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.

Updates from the bakery..

Greetings all,

Strange spell of weather we're having, huh? Don't know how to feel about the warmth. It's certainly better than being chilled to the bone, but I wonder what the cause is...

In any case, as you know, we recently launched our Gluten-Free line of baked goods. We are very happy with the warm reception these new cookies, muffins, and banana bread have been getting! Fitting for the outside temperature, wouldn't you say? If you haven't already, check out our brand new Gluten-Free Shop.

On another note, considering the temperature outside, it's amazing Thanksgiving is just over a week away! Can you believe the Holiday season is just around the corner? I'm sure you will all be spending much needed time with all of your loved ones, be it friends or family, as we inch closer to 2010. Even if the weather doesn't maintain this uncharacteristic mildness, we here at the Greyston Bakery hope that you stay warm in the coming weeks. In the next few days we will have blog entries from our resident Gluten-Free guru Judith Mann and our new CEO Bill Mistretta, so look out for that and keep doing good and doing well!

The Do-Goodie Family
