A Great Way to Make Dough

As just seen on 60 Minutes: in an economy where most businesses do little more for the community that propriety demands, the Greystone Bakery in Yonkers, NC serves as a role model. Not only do they employ the homeless and former felons to help bake their cakes (which retail for $30+), but they also make a profit, which they then pass on to various charities. Their hiring policy appears literally to be "first come, first served."

These people are real heroes. This is capitalism you can actually believe in.
