MBW Café and Bakery – Come support this wonderful outreach program! It is located in Bakery Square.
Hours: Monday-Friday 7 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Saturday & Sunday 8 a.m. - 2 p.m.
My Brother’s Workshop was founded in late 2007 by retired industrial engineer Scott Bradley as a program to provide mentoring, counseling, education, and job training and placement, primarily through teaching woodworking and carpentry. In 2014 Bradley was awarded the National Lewis Hine Award for Service to Children and Youth.
The new MBW Bakery and Cafe will offer a whole new set of opportunities for residents age 16 to 24 by offering training in cooking, baking and hospitality. When MBW first started, the program offered training in plumbing, electrical work and construction to members of the crew, but many said Thursday that the bakery will open up new opportunities.
