Hot Bread Kitchen Is Changing The Lives Of Immigrant Women

November 11, 2017

Jessamyn Rodriguez joins us to discuss Hot Bread Kitchen, a culinary program she founded that helps low-income, immigrant, and refugee women train as bakers and become entrepreneurs. We’re also joined by participants Nancy Rosa and Saba Arain. Nancy is a Puerto Rican New Yorker who graduated with a job at Zaro’s, and has recently joined the Hot Bread Kitchen Greenmarket team. Saba is from Pakistan and moved to NYC in 2009. She is an alumnus of the program, and now works at Whole Foods Harlem.
