The inspiration for Whippourwill came from our son, Steven, who is on the autism spectrum and has a passion for baking. At the age of 7, Steven declared that he wanted to be a professional baker. With the help of teachers and therapists, we created a home school curriculum based on baking to teach math, science, life and social skills, geography, reading and writing. Today, Steven uses the internet to find recipes, shops at our local markets for ingredients and bakes from scratch several times a week.
Whippourwill is a 501(c)(3) non profit bakery. Our mission is to create meaningful employment for individuals of all abilities in an inclusive work environment.
