North Country Union Jr. High students donate bread to Food Shelf


HOMEMADE BREAD FOR THE FOOD SHELF -- Seventh-grade students at North Country Union Junior High School in Derby collected over 110 loaves of bread, including a gluten free, a banana nut, and a pumpkin bread on March 16, which they then donated to the United Church of Newport Food Shelf. The bread was made at home by the students, following the Bake for Good Program, sponsored by King Arthur Flour on March 12 at the school. After learning the science and art of making bread, the students were given enough ingredients to take home over the weekend to make the equivalent of two loaves of bread, bringing one loaf back to the school to donate to the food shelf. Participating in the donation are: front row from left, Shane Craig, Ryan Oeschger and Addison Cook; back row, Christina Young, seventh-grade math teachers Roberta Baker, Josh Fortin and Roni Murphy, Merle Chilcott (representing the food shelf) and Mikayla Camber.
