Hot Bread Kitchen, the forward thinking non-profit bakery and business incubator geared towards providing jobs and training to immigrant women, has recently launched a new Kickstarter to get its scholarship program off the ground. The fundraising goal for the Women Bake Bread Scholarship is set at $54,000, and if achieved, would allow the organization to offer year-long, paid training positions in its kitchen to low-income immigrant women, who don't have the option of going to culinary school. And it's a good alternative: women who have worked in the Hot Bread kitchens have gone on to work at places like Runner & Stone, Maison Kayser, Bien Cuit, and even Daniel.
Check out the video below for a peek at the bread-making operations. The Kickstarter is already more than halfway funded, but it ends on November 1, so there are only a few weeks left to get the rest of the way.
