Recently, South Royalton students have been busy mixing, forming, baking, and donating many loaves of bread and dozens of rolls with the help of King Arthur Flour’s community giving program, “Bake for Good: Kids.”

According to King Arthur Flour, the mission of their “Bake for Good” program is to “share the joy of baking as a way to build stronger communities and increase access and connection to real foods.”

Just last week, the Royals’ Nordic ski team baked 20 dozen rolls and donated them to their local Meals on Wheels chapter. They also donated four dozen rolls to the Friday night community dinner at the Red Door Church.

South Royalton’s middle school has also participated in the giving program. An in-school demonstration by a King Arthur Flour representative walked the students through bread recipes, step by step, and taught them through science, reading, and of course, baking, how to make delicious breads from scratch.

Afterwards, flour and materials were provided, distributed, and sent home. Sixth graders, seventh graders, and the teachers gave a total of 30 donations of loaves of bread and rolls to the South Royalton food shelf.

Overall, over 300,000 students across the country have participated in the “Bake for Good” programs to date. Although it is impossible to measure the amount of help given from these donations, these SoRo bread makers have certainly “baked for good.”
