Special Touch Bakery provides training and employment opportunities for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Founded in 1982, Special Touch Bakery, a division of Holy Childhood, is part of the Jimmy W. Wilmot Adult Day Training Program.  In addition to making delicious (and famous) pies, Special Touch Bakery serves as an opportunity for nearly 15 adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities to learn food production and food service skills while earning a paycheck.   The bakery provides individuals with an income and the development of lifelong skills to further their opportunities in the working world and gives them the confidence and skills they need for maximum independence and integration in the community.  Special Touch Bakery produces an impressive 16,000 pies annually which are available year-round at Holy Childhood and at various retail outlets around Rochester.

With a vision toward the future, Holy Childhood will move the Special Touch Bakery out of the agency’s 700 sq. ft. school kitchen to a brand new, state of the art, 20,000 sq. ft. facility located at 1999 Mt. Read Blvd. in Rochester, NY.  This move will create up to 40 additional positions, in an integrated, competitive, work environment where people with disabilities will work side-by-side with their non-disabled peers. The new facility will also allow Special Touch Bakery to substantially increase pie production.  Palmer Food Services is the bakery’s distribution partner in this new venture, which will enable Special Touch Bakery to expand regionally and eventually nationwide.  You can follow the construction process on our Special Touch Bakery Facebook page - please "like us" while you're there!  

The new Special Touch Bakery is scheduled to open later THIS MONTH!
