Hot Bread Kitchen aims to increase economic security for foreign-born and low-income women and men.
HBK uses its culinary workforce and business incubation programs, Project Launch and HBK Incubates to get access to the billion dollar specialty food industry.
So as to offset the cost of training and to build esteem in the contribution of immigrants, HBK sells delicious multi-ethnic breads that are inspired by the bakers and the many countries that they come from.
As part of the mission, HBK preserves valuable baking and culinary traditions and “br-educate” New Yorkers about the tasty and important contribution of immigrant communities.
After having that sort of experience, people are more willing to accept that immigrants could contribute to the society and it will also increase their respect towards them.
It's a great way to understand that each person has something to offer and that the point is to find that little something and benefit from it in every possible way.
