Please note, Luminary is no longer taking orders for Christmas.
Combining delicious recipes with stories from the bakery and the women Luminary has helped empower, Rising Hope will take you on a journey that shows how anyone, anywhere, can learn how to bake, grow as an individual, and share their experiences with those around them.
Just when you thought baking couldn’t get any better, along comes Luminary Bakery.
This London-based social enterprise uses baking as a tool to help women reach their full potential – women who may never have had the opportunity to do so otherwise because of immensely isolating social and economic disadvantages. All too often, they’ve experienced an intersection of gender-based violence, low income, poor physical and mental health, substance misuse and homelessness.
Luminary is a space where women can overcome these multiple disadvantages. Joining the bakery sets them on a holistic programme of training and support, leading onto sustainable employment opportunities.
It’s no overstatement to call this programme life-changing. Women start successful careers, gain a sense of self-confidence and become part of a supportive community.
As amazing as the impact are the bakes, which are perfect for a celebration or special treat. Who wouldn’t love a tray of letterbox brownies to arrive at the door? Choose from flavours like salted caramel, pumpkin spice latte or coconut and cherry as well as blondies and cookies too. Enjoy!
