Luminary Bakery, Stoke Newington
The mission of this Stoke Newington social enterprise bakery is to build a future for vulnerable women who have experienced social and economic disadvantage through violence and sexual exploitation. The Luminary Bakery has a mission to re-empower these women through their employability training or progression support programmes. They go about it through a holistic approach to education by providing transferable skills and financial management, plus the women gain hygiene qualifications, and learn to bake to a professional standard. And as for the goodies you’ll find at the Luminary Bakery, there’s celebration cakes, traybakes, vegan peanut butter cookies and cinnamon swirls – all of which satiate sweet tooths. You can also find Luminary Bakery’s second home now open in Chalk Farm.
