The Wagster Treats Impact Story
Working for Wagster Treats offers hands-on learning and dignified employment for adults overcoming homelessness, generational poverty and other challenges that have limited their opportunities. Our bakers trained at Fresh Starts Culinary Academy, an award-winning program that serves homeless and low-income adults. The training program and Wagster Treats launched at Homeward Bound of Marin, a innovative nonprofit operating shelter, housing and supportive services for homeless families and adults in Marin County, Calif. All profits from Wagster Treats support nonprofit shelter, housing and training services. Along with training that empowers our staff, Wagster also focuses on sustainabiity with plant-based ingredients and a low-waste environment. The kitchen that hosts Wagster Treats is a certified Bay Area Green Business.
