All Things Sweet by O.U.R. Mission

I was excited to find out more about All Things Sweet.  This bakery is part of the Orlando Union Rescue Mission where the teach homeless women and men the art and business of baking.  I joined a dozen Central Florida Lady Bloggers for a luncheon where we not only got to enjoy their baked goods, but we learned a bit about the bakery and their mission as well.

 The staff at All Things Sweet warmly greeted our group.  They had all their Valentine's Day treats displayed on the tables, and what a visual delight!  They really did a fabulous job on the presentation.

After we were done drooling over the desserts at our table we found out a bit about the Orlando Rescue Union Mission and how they help the homeless here in Central Florida.  Lanette Jarvis is the Manager of Social Enterprise and she told us how OURM provides those in need with shelter, food, job training, education and Biblical mentoring.  They offer resources to help each guest achieve self-sufficiency.  One way they do that is through the bakery.

The men and women enrolled in the program not only learn a number of baking techniques, but they also learn how to use equipment that is commonly found in bakeries and pastry shops.  The students are all trained by culinary and pastry chefs from Valencia College.

When you support All Things Sweet you not only get a quality product that is delicious, but also you are helping to make life sweet again for the homeless in our community.
