Blue Sky Bakery

Doser: Blue Sky Bakery 

Founder: Lisa Thompson

Why we love them: Eat scrumptious, freshly made treats. Support ambitious youth who need a second chance. Don’t have to ask us twice!

Service: Recognizing that learning is a life-long process, Thompson provides an intensive program helping develop culinary skills that translate into secure and rewarding positions in Chicago’s kitchens. But she also emphasizes conflict resolution, communication, and time management: transferrable skills that make us better workers and better citizens no matter our background or field of employment.
