Some say life is a lot like baking. It’s all about finding the right combination of ingredients, rising to the occasion and savoring the sweetness. Tasha seems to have the recipe down pat.
The Disability.gov team met up with Tasha at Wildflour Caterers in Chantilly, Virginia, where she works doing a variety of tasks, including prep work in the kitchen and helping maintain the onsite café. But her favorite activity is baking, and in particular, rolling out and shaping the dog biscuits the company supplies to Whole Foods and Wegmans stores across the Washington, D.C., area. Wildflour’s mission includes a commitment to providing employment and training opportunities to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, like Tasha, who has Down syndrome.
