Every Friday The Foundry Home Goods donates 5% of our total sales to a different community-nominated small-and-mighty cause. This Friday's Foundry Giving Friday recipient? Green Garden Bakery!
Green Garden Bakery is an award-winning youth-run business selling vegetable-based desserts (!) to the Minneapolis community. Run by young entrepreneurs from Heritage Park - North Minneapolis, Green Garden Bakery grows vegetables in their community garden, bakes them into healthy vegetable-based desserts for every diet (vegan, gluten free, sugar free oh la la), and markets them using sustainable practices. They use a "pay-what-you-want/can" model and donate their proceeds back into the community.
Lemon Zucchini Muffins + Sweet Potato Donuts with African Tea Spice + Jalapeno Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches!? + self-starting social change through the empowerment of universal entrepreneurial skillsets that are also creating community-built architecture to address food insecurity= AHH THE SWEETEST THINGS!

Thank you to K Jacobson for the nomination!
We are pleased and proud to support this delicious, nourishing work, this Giving Friday and always. If you don't need anything from us, consider donating to Green Garden Bakery directly (or order some delicious baked goodies to give and get back!). Right now they are currently raising funds for a community kitchen and walk-in bakery to serve the Green Garden Bakery community.
If you DO find yourself in need of a place to put your Green Tomato Cake or a a nice cool glass of milk to go along with your sweet treats, know that your purchase goes to support good change happening on the community level.
