We are Rise. We bake goods. And we do good.
We’re part of a great charity – Providence Row. Based in the East End for 150 years, we empower people. We help them find housing, and help them stay in it too. We tackle the root causes of homelessness (substance misuse, mental health) and get people on their feet and into work again. You can see our impact report
To support Providence Row’s mission the social enterprise Rise bakery was created. Our brownies are baked by people who used to be homeless. We train them up to help them find work and get their confidence back.
We are based just off Brick Lane. We source products locally where reasonable and have a roof garden, so are starting to grow stuff there too. We also do our bit to look after the environment (no big nasty delivery trucks, minimal packaging).
The good news is that we use fruit and veg as much as possible so you could eat a get a guilt-free treat! We sell some of the best brownies, fruity breads, loaf cakes, and quiches going. Everything is seasonal, so the menu changes four times a year. And after a couple of years our cakes were going down so well locally, we decided to start selling online too.
