The Bake for Good program is a free program sponsored by King Arthur Flour that introduces children to baking both for themselves and for those in need.
A representative from the program comes to the children’s school and teaches them how to bake bread. The students are then given enough flour and yeast to make two loaves of bread. They are instructed to keep one of the loaves and give the other to someone in need.
“Our goals are for kids to learn how to bake, how to share with their families and how to do community service,” said Amy Driscoll, one of the instructors with the program. “We visit about 30,000 kids a year and we go all over the country.”
The program is based out of Vermont with instructors who live all over the country, but this is the first time it has come to Tennessee.
The instructors visited Winfree Bryant Middle School on Tuesday morning and will visit Walter J. Baird Middle School and Coles Ferry Elementary School on Wednesday.
