Who Are You: Kimi Owens
I am the Weekend Supervisor and general administrator of this site, and I’ve been working at the Bread Workshop since June 2008. I have a strong background in the arts and design, with a particular fondness towards illustration. Coffee and bread being two of my favourite things, I applied on a whim, and quickly grew to love being a barista, in no small part to all of my customers. I spend less and less time at the counter these days, but it’s allowing me to focus on projects like this website, which I hope will be more than the usual fare.
Working in the Bread Workshop Cafe was my first foray into food service, and I am grateful for having such a fantastic introduction. Besides gaining a huge amount of respect for what it takes to run a restaurant from the front of the house to the back of the house, a big part of what makes working at the Bread Workshop fulfilling for me are the ethics.
That our owner and purchaser work hard to make the right choices towards sustainability in the long-term has really helped open my eyes towards big-picture choices when it comes to compostable, renewable, and reusable products. I have a much stronger knowledge of what sustainability really means and how much of an impact making good food choices can make for both the physical and economic health of a community.
