As households stock up on basic kitchen staples during the coronavirus pandemic, the Baltimore-based H&S Bakery is hiring more than 50 new employees to keep up with the increased demand for bread.
The bakery said it is planning to increase production and distribution in response to COVID-19.
“The need for new employees comes as workers across Baltimore, and the nation, are finding themselves out of work with restaurants, shops and other businesses forced to shutter in the wake of the outbreak,” the company said in a statement.
The company is hiring temporary and permanent employees at its five Baltimore-area locations, including its headquarters in Fells Point as well as Mid-Atlantic Baking, Crispy Bagel, Schmidt, and Automatic Rolls of Baltimore.
H&S Bakery has openings for salaried management, supervisor and engineering positions with comprehensive benefits packages, and many of the temporary positions do not require prior experience, the statement said.
The company is working with local organizations, such as Meals on Wheels, Moveable Feast and Baltimore Hunger Project, to provide thousands of free loaves of bread to families and workers in need, according to the statement.
The bakery traces back to the Paterakis and Tsakalos families, who both emigrated from Greece to Baltimore in the 1920s.
H&S Bakery acknowledged the current employees who “stepped up to the challenge of the last few weeks” to provide bread to local groceries and communities during the pandemic.
“The company proudly recognizes the loyalty and sacrifice of these employees who continue to serve their community day in and day out,” the company said.
