At last week’s City Party on the Plaza the Lovin’ Oven bakers were presented with a check for $500 courtesy of Rabo Bank. Vice President and Branch Manager Cathy Gorham made the donation, to be used to purchase baking ingredients. The baking program has expanded products from the original “Lollicakes” to pies on a stick, huevos en mano, flatbread and many other items.
Lovin’ Oven is a teen–operated bakery at The Valley of the Moon Teen Center. It is one of the programs offered by Sonoma Valley Teen Services, which provides skill-based programs for teens. Experiential, hands-on and inspirational programs are designed to reinforce and foster students’ academic and career interests through involvement with the community and local businesses. Other programs include the No-Name Café, Art Wednesday and The Shop.
