COBS Bread supported bakers and baking with a special scholarship. The company pledged $100,000 to Centennial College’s School of Hospitality, Tourism and Culinary Arts program.

The donation was recognized on October 17, with a room dedication plaque and signage that designated the college’s Baking Lab in the name of COBS Bread. The Vancouver-based bakery first opened in 2003 and in Toronto in 2006. Today it operates 120 bakeries across the country.

“The COBS Bread Baking Lab is the flagship of our awesome partnership, which also includes a scholarship and a work placement program,” said Karen Frost-Spokes, Regional Director of COBS Bread in a press release. “We are so proud to work with Centennial College in supporting and developing students who are passionate bakers that want to be the best in their field.”
