After devoting herself to a career promoting Human Rights, Jessamyn Rodriguez had an idea. She would start a baking coalition that would empower immigrant, low-income women by teaching English and business management classes alongside technical baking skills. The now thriving Hot Bread Kitchen makes over $2 million a year in just bread revenue, proving that a social mission with a good product can succeed in today’s market. Heritage Radio Network has chosen Jessamyn as one of our 100 Future Food Leaders for her innovative and inspiring work on the advancement of Human Rights.
