Cafe Sunflower is currently closed for repairs.

Sunflower Bakery will be closed on Sunday, May 26 and Monday, May 27 in observance of the Memorial Day holiday.

Please join us in celebrating our graduates and community champions at Sunflower Bakery’s Annual Celebration & Graduation Event on June 16th! Tickets are available HERE.


The support of individuals, foundations, Montgomery County government and corporations provides approximately half of our annual budget. The other half of our operating budget comes from the social enterprise component of our organization through the sale of our delicious products as well as program fees. Our non-profit social enterprise serves a critical community need and is market-driven with students having a role in everything that is made or sold.
