Bake for Good

What is Bake for Good?

Bake for Good is King Arthur Baking Company’s free outreach program for students in grades 4 -12. We have three goals: learn, bake, and share. Students learn to make bread from scratch at home using ingredients supplied by us. The recipe makes two loaves, one they keep and one that is shared with someone in need or as an act of kindness.

Bake for Good is going remote!

Recognizing that school is going to look very different this fall, we have transitioned our Bake for Good program to be entirely remote to best serve the needs of you and your students/group. If you have hosted either the In-School or Self-Directed programs, the options below will look familiar. If you are applying for the first time, welcome!

Here are a few key points and changes from last year:

  • All participants will get their own Baking Kit no matter which option you choose. This provides materials for students to bake safely at home or at school.
  • Sharing is still important, but flexible. Ideally, we would love your school to donate their beautiful bread to a hunger relief organization but that might not be possible right now. Instead, students can share their bread with a neighbor, friend or family member as an act of kindness.
  • All program options require a level of video technology. Either watching the instructional video online, and/or using a remote video platform to learn with the teacher, class, or BFG Instructor.
