Learn, Bake, Share: Free Life Skills Bread Baking for Grades 4-7

The folks at King Arthur Flour are touting their Life Skills Bread Baking Program.

Apparently the folks at KAF will come to your school, teach your kids about baking and then donate the bread they make to people in need. All at no cost. I try not to use exclamations in my posts, but:  Wow!

From their site:

How does the program work?

The FREE Life Skills Bread Baking Program has reached more than 155,000 students nationwide since it began in 1992, providing kids with a fun, real-world application for skills they’re already learning in school – math, science, reading, planning, problem solving, and more. And they get to use their new skill to help people in their community.

Here’s how it works:

Teaching to an audience of students in grades 4, 5, 6, and/or 7, a King Arthur Flour instructor and two student assistants present a 50-minute demonstration on the bread baking process. Then, each future baker takes home materials, including our nutritious whole-grain flour, and the know-how to get baking! Students bake two delicious loaves – one to enjoy, the other for donation to a community organization chosen by the school. King Arthur Flour brings this exciting program to schools FREE of charge.
