BWD Found a New Home!
The growth of Bake with Dignity is like a seed sown into the ground that has sprouted and now looking for more space to flourish. For the past seven years, Bake with Dignity has been sharing the very kitchen used for D&S supported living programme in Taman Tun Dr Ismail in Kuala Lumpur.
From a humble 6-litre oven, we invested in a 56-litre Zanussi Oven Stove. As more orders came in especially during the festive seasons, we bought a gas-fired industrial oven with a capacity of baking 20kg/hour. As the business continues to grow, the space in the kitchen has grown tighter too - a challenge for one of our members who is a wheelchair user. Ventilation is also an issue. When the industrial oven is on for extended period, it is a challenge to keep cookie doughs and bakers cool.
Today, we are proud to announce that we have moved to a brand new site! In order to create more job opportunities for our members with higher functioning skills, the site will feature a café to serve walk-in customers.
We will also host baking classes on weekends. Classes will be opened to Persons with Learning Disabilities 17 years old and above as well as parents/caregivers who want to learn to bake in order to teach their children/charges.
Holiday baking programmes are also in the pipeline for anyone who simply wants to learn to cook and bake – there’s something for everyone!
