Homeboy Bakery is one of LA’s most beautiful fairy tales. Founded in 1992 by Father Gregory Boyle, this bakery welcomes former gang members and rehabilitates them with the power of food. The profits from cake sales help continue the programme, but also fund tattoo laser removal for every employee that needs it. Pies, vegan brownies, jalapeño cornbread, kouglof… Even when you’re not hungry, you’ll want to buy pastries from Homeboy Bakery – to play a role in one of LA’s most beautiful fairy tales.
