Good eats, good stories. The culinary community’s good deeds inspire others to act

Paderia Bakehouse in Fountain Valley donated hundreds of cookies to front-line workers, nurses and doctors at UC Irvine Medical CenterHoag Hospital and CHOC Children’s Hospital. The give-back program allowed the community to participate by purchasing e-gift cards to fund the endeavor. The bakery continues to offer free Malasadas for health care workers who present their badge at pickup. ::
