Their pies are special. They’re made with love by all kinds of people, including those with developmental disabilities.

“This is a great opportunity for us to give them an opportunity to develop themselves,” said Perdicho. 

For Megan Seedhouse, she loved it so much that she came back a second year. She like many others learn all kinds of work at the bakery.
