Lives made better.
Hayes Valley Bakeworks operates the cafe as a non-profit “social enterprise.” In addition to our delicious food and coffee, we provide employment and training for people with disabilities, who are homeless or at risk.
Hayes Valley Bakeworks is the brainchild of Toolworks, a dynamic non-profit organization connecting ability to opportunity. Toolworks partners with the bakery to create a supportive environment for our participants who learn all facets of the food service business. Our local producers and suppliers also take part in our training program, offering career advice and sharing their passion for the food industry.
