On April 21, Amy Driscoll, an associate of King Arthur’s Flour Company, presented an assembly to students at Holland Brook School showing them the steps to baking a loaf of bread. Student helpers assisted Ms. Driscoll while she explained the process. Over the weekend of April 25-26, 133 students each baked two loaves of bread, one for themselves and one for donation to the Samaritan Homeless Interim Program in Somerville and the Market Street Mission in Morristown.
The assembly was part of King Arthur Flour’s “Learn Bake Share Program” which teaches students how to make bread from scratch, encourages them to bake at home with their families, and benefits the community through bread donation to local organizations. The idea to host the assembly at Holland Brook School came from the school’s teacher exchange program with Chatham schools, who have been hosting the King Arthur’s program for several years.
