New Leaf Bakery Cafe receives $500 grant from The Associated Garden Club of Spokane

Funding from The Associated Garden Club of Spokane will help buy the gardening supplies needed for the vegetable and herb kitchen garden New Leaf uses to support their commercial kitchen skills training program which includes showing participants the basics of gardening, how to use what they grow in meal preparation, and sustainable composting practices. Transitions' New Leaf Bakery Cafe program is a unique job training program in food service for women with barriers to traditional employment. The program blends education, hands-on work experience, and supportive services designed to help women gain the self-confidence and professional skills necessary for self-sufficiency.
