Governance

Sunflower Bakery is governed by an experienced and dedicated Board of Directors. Our Board of Directors is actively involved in our work. An Acceptance, Review and Dismissal Committee, comprised of disability and food industry professionals, reviews applicants for the employment-track programs. And, our Advisory Committee members provide guidance and advice in their particular areas of expertise. Café Sunflower & Bakery LLC has its own caring and knowledgeable Board that is responsible to the Sunflower Bakery Board of Directors.
