Our new holiday gift boxes and other tasty items from our kitchen let you bestow a unique present and “take a bite out of homelessness” at the same time. You can order a gift box today!

Choose from a Sweet Box, Savory Box, Biscotti Tin or Dog Lovers’ Box to please your colleagues, clients, friends and family. All the products are handmade by students and staff at Fresh Starts Culinary Academy, which offers job training to people working their way out of homelessness and poverty.

We offer convenient arrangements to pick up orders and shipping for gift boxes if needed. If you have questions, please email Darby Tarantino or call 415-382-3363 x214. All proceeds from your purchase support our shelter, housing and training programs at Homeward Bound.

Look for our team at upcoming craft fairs with other gifts from our kitchen like jams, sauces and chocolate bark. We will be selling Halo HomeMade products from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 20, at the Holiday Fair at St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church in Belvedere and on Friday and Saturday, Dec. 3 and 4, at the Margaret Todd Center Holiday Faire in Novato.
