Bread baking gives rise to community service project
This past February, Hudson Middle School students in Deb Gangnon's eighth grade Food Science/Snack Shop classes baked and donated bread to HOME (Hudson Outreach Meal for Everyone) Program.
Students also served a meal at Bethel Lutheran Church. Brian Ullom, one of the coordinators of the meals at Bethel Lutheran Church said guests were very appreciative and the student-baked breads were a hit.
As part of this class, students learn the science behind baking bread. Once they learn the basics of bread baking, they explore recipe writing and the science involved to create their own original versions of whole wheat bread. Along the way, students learn how ingredients interact with each other, about food photography and nutrition analysis.
The King Arthur Flour Company sponsored this project, in part. The project encourages students to learn how to bake, the science behind it bread, and gives students the opportunity to serve their community. As part of the program called "Bake for Good," King Arthur Flour Company donates the flour and yeast used for the donations.
