Lavish Bakery is a socially-conscious bakery serving freshly baked artisan bread, handmade with organic ingredients sourced from locally-owned grocery stores and markets. We passionately work to help restore and grow the social-economic fabric of our city by connecting people to healthy food, their community, our environment, and meaningful employment.
The more connected we are, the stronger we become.
Working directly with local grocers and producers to source our ingredients helps strengthen our local economy by reinvesting within the community. Partnering with local social service agencies to source our employees helps strengthen our society by providing individuals facing barriers with living wage jobs. Committing to use organic ingredients whenever possible and making sure our packaging is environmentally friendly strengthens our ecosystem by helping restore and sustain the planet we call home.

+Lavish Bakery believes in being good stewards of the earth. The better we care for it, the better it cares for us. We currently use organic ingredients whenever possible, but we are working with local farmers and grocers towards sourcing 100% of our ingredients organically and locally within Alberta.
Lavish Bakery partners with some amazing people and organizations in Calgary who selflessly advocate for others. They come alongside individuals and families facing multiple barriers to achieving a standard of living that allows them to grow and thrive in our city. One of the biggest barriers is meaningful employment. We love how Thrive Calgary frames the conversation:
What if everyone had a job that allowed them to take care of themselves and their families? What if no one had to choose between earning money and having time to have a life? What if people earning low wages had access to meaningful, career-track jobs that paid a living wage? What if our jobs actually enhanced our lives and made our neighbourhoods more vibrant and resilient? What if truly meaningful employment were the norm?
Lavish Bakery was founded to see lives transformed through partnerships with like-minded people who leverage each other's strengths to achieve more than they could on their own. As we grow and need to hire more staff, our plan is to source our employees through our partners. We are building our capacity to offer meaningful employment at a living wage, helping to knock down one barrier as our partners empower them to knock down others.
We were created to be in community, and these are some of our awesome neighbours:
