KIng Arthur's Life Skills Baking Program
Gotta say I love my son's school! Next week he will take part in this work shop.
<<Here’s how it works:
In an assembly setting, a King Arthur Flour instructor and two student assistants present a 50-minute demonstration on
the bread baking process. Then, each student takes home materials, including our nutritious whole-grain flour, and the
know-how to get baking! Students keep one delicious loaf to enjoy, and donate the other to a community organization
chosen by your school. King Arthur Flour brings this exciting program to your school FREE of charge.>>
He has been baking bread with me since he was small but I still think this a huge benefit in many ways. I never knew this program existed but its nice to know it does
That's wonderful! I'm going to pass the link around the districts I know and see if they have any interest.
Bummer that KA wasn't available but you could probably get 25# of flour from a local wholesale grocery for under $20. You could get a pound of yeast for about $5. The school could, no doubt, give you water. And you could bring a pound of salt and probably not even use a quarter of it.
What I'm saying, is it sounds like a GREAT idea and you've got the enthusiasm. You could do it!!! I bet if you talked to the good folks at KA they'd share a lesson plan.
Go talk to the school. There's nothing that will spoil. There isn't anything but the flour that might be an allergen and there probably would only be 1 or 2 kids in any class that would have a wheat allergy -- more bread for the community organization.
You can do this!
