PARKING

We recommend taking BART to the Montgomery Street stop. If you choose to drive, One Front Street's garage is located at 36 Battery Street and is connected to the building lobby. Flat rate parking is $33/day after 9am, with the garage closing at 8pm. If you need to leave the car overnight, you must let us know two days prior to the event so we can make proper arrangements with parking management.

ABOUT THE BREAD PROJECT

The Bread Project has helped almost 1,700 hundred low-income people become self-sufficient through the art of baking. We train them and help them find jobs. 

From our 16 years of experience we know baking is a skill that is replicable and transferable across all cultures and languages. We serve marginalized people facing multiple barriers to employment. This includes refugees, the re-entry population (ex-offenders or those with records), and other individuals looking to rebuild their lives. Each year an average of 260 refugees come from war-torn countries such as Iran, Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan and are resettled in our counties (Alameda and Contra Costa). Many arrive with little or no resources, friends or family. Alongside our refugee population, we also work with the formerly incarcerated. Despite having served their time, they remain ostracized by society when reintegrating with the community.

The Bread Project provides training, a positive environment, a strong network of support and the pathway for a job. This is the lifeline they need to build a better future.

Help us transform lives and donate today. All donations are tax-deductible.
