About Greyston:
For 37 years, Greyston has been changing lives by providing job opportunities – no questions asked.

We are a hybrid organization dedicated to serving the community of southwest Yonkers, NY where we have been practicing and refining Open Hiring at our for-profit social enterprise, Greyston Bakery, where we hire anyone seeking a job, effectively eliminating barriers to employment. – Grayston 2019 Gala at X2O – May 2nd
