The mission of South Fork Bakery is to provide meaningful, paid employment to adults with disabilites. Shirley Ruch created the bakery in May of 2016 after decades of experience supporting special needs children and adults through her Speech/Language and Family Coaching Practice. There are currently 15 adults with special
needs who have found community and meaningful employment at the bakery. Shirley thanks all who have supported the bakery this summer at local Farmer's Markets! South Fork Bakery continues to provide their delicious products at over 50 local stores and farm stands from Montauk to Manhattan. Look for us and help empower and employ more special needs adults by supporting us through your purchases!
