Transcript for Bakery’s mission to feed underserved communities
And we're back now on "Gma3" with a Baltimore woman's amazing accomplishment in the summer of covid, opening her own brand-new bakery with a lot of help from her extended family and a vision of what really feeds us. I have been a chef, I want to say, since I was like 6 years old.
