East End Market recently released their incubator kitchen application to the public, inviting home-cooks, food truck owners, and chefs of all kinds to work alongside their merchants in a licensed kitchen space. The first member to join was Jane’s Short and Sweet.
You may have sampled her shortbread at some of our special events, but there is much more than meets the mouth in this case. Baking over 30 flavors of shortbreads, her cookies are uplifting in more than one way. One hundred percent of Jane’s profits go back to non-profits to finance improvements in the difficult lives of women in our neighborhoods, our cities and world.
Jane explains, “We feel very passionately that because we have the freedom to pursue the things we love, we also have the responsibility to help those who do not. With your purchases of Jane’s, you are joining us as we come alongside local and international organizations to bring tangible and life-transforming hope where there is human trafficking, abuse, lack of educational opportunities and non-existent medical care.”
So, don’t feel so bad about treating yourself to a cookie next time. Know that you are treating someone else too. Look out for her sweets around town and through her website, and let us know if you are interested in joining our merchants in the kitchen!
