Our bakery is so much more than just a workplace. It serves as a classroom for refugee and immigrant women to build skills and confidence. For four months, fellows earn while they learn, gaining crucial skills needed for future employment.

The Treats

"When Caterina Passoni ’18 first crossed paths with Nieda Abbas, an Iraqi refugee and mother of six, as her English-as-a-second-language teacher, Abbas had been unemployed for five years, living on cash assistance and unemployment benefits amounting to just $700 a month . . ." 

Yale startup employs and empowers refugees

"The name “New Haven” is a perfect way to describe a place for refugees to find a new home . . .The city of New Haven also would not be the place it is without its biggest, most obvious resident, Yale University. When the two forces join, the results are delicious . . ."

Yale students, refugees join with delicious results

"It was Nieda Abbas’s home cooking, more than anything, that got Caterina Passoni through her first year at Yale. Passoni was assigned as a “cultural companion” to Abbas’s teenage daughter through a volunteer program at New Haven’s Integrated Refugee and Immigrant Services (IRIS) . . ."
