Based in Yonkers, Greyston Bakery has been infusing Ben & Jerry’s ice cream with delectable baked treats since 1990, and currently delivers 25,000 pounds of brownies each day to add something special to the popular ice cream.
The Bakery is a key component of The Greyston Foundation, a sustainable organization that works to solve the problems of urban communities by providing employment, housing, and healthcare to those in need. All of Greyston Bakery’s profits go directly to The Greyston Foundation and its programs.
