The aroma of home-baked bread will be in the air in two Chester County Catholic schools Thursday, Oct. 9 when the King Arthur Flour Company teaches 245 students in grades four through eight to bake fresh, nutritious bread from scratch.
St. Norbert School in Paoli will welcome representatives of the Vermont-based company at 9:15 a.m. while St. Patrick School in Malvern hosts them at 1 p.m.
Students will go home with ingredients including King Arthur white whole wheat flour, baking skills and the confidence to bake two loaves of bread by themselves — one to enjoy with their family and another to bring back to school to share with their community.
Bread will be collected by the schools and donated to St. John’s Hospice, Chester County Food Bank, St. Agnes Day Room and St. Gabriel’s Food Cupboard.
“The Bake for Good: Kids Program has three goals for kids: learn, bake, share,” said Paula Gray, program manager. “The cross-curricular program includes math, science, reading, following directions, and more. They learn about baking via practical application of those skills. After the 50-minute presentation, kids can’t wait to bake. They’re eager to use and share their newfound knowledge by baking for others, and they get to eat some of their ‘homework.’ The results are beautiful, and taste great!”
