Hello, we’re Bread Head
Encouraging self efficacy through life skills,
cooking classes, and community.

In 2016, Celeste Baker founded Bread Head to support newly housed individuals by offering access to food and life skills through her PAN program. She intended to share the basics of cooking skills in a universally approachable way so people could build healthy personal relationships with food and share that with their surrounding community. Today, we continue to strive for these principles in order to create networks of empowered people.
Who We Are
Project Access Nourishment (PAN)
What is PAN?
PAN is a training program focused on building food literacy competencies. Food literacy is the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to choose, prepare, and enjoy healthy food to support one’s health.
Upon completion of PAN, participants have developed a foundation of skills in cooking basics, time management, inventiveness, budgeting, goal setting, and mindful eating practices. Our goal is for participants to build self-efficacy as they nourish themselves and their families in body, mind, and community.
