Greyston Bakery

Greyston Bakery was founded in 1982 by a Zen Buddhist monk, Bernie Glassman. Through an Open Hiring™ Model, Greyston provides a job and resources to individuals with barriers to employment, no questions asked. We create opportunities for people who have been formerly incarcerated, those with minimal education or past job experiences and individuals who do not speak English. And, because we know that a job is not enough to create a thriving community, we offer child care to inspire lifelong learners, community gardens to cultivate a healthy and sustainable neighborhood, and workforce development programs to build pathways for job advancement. Greyston currently employs 75 bakers, who produce delicious, hand made, preservative-free brownies and cookies for Ben & Jerry's ice cream and Whole Foods Market. Each decadent treat sold supports the potential of a community.

From the 63rd Summer Fancy Food Show 2017 (booth 3915)

Founded in 1982, Greyston is an integrated network of programs that provides jobs, workforce development, child care, after-school programs and community gardens, reaching more than 5,000 community members annually. Best known for Greyston Bakery, which produces brownies for Ben & Jerry’s and Whole Foods, Greyston embraces an individual’s potential by providing employment opportunities regardless of background or work history while offering the support necessary to thrive in the workplace and in the community through an Open Hiring model.
