No one can resist the aroma of freshly baked bread and many Flandreau homes are experiencing the enjoyment of warm homemade bread and cinnamon rolls made by one of their own family members using King Arthur flours. Neighbors, relatives and special friends may be surprised by a baked product given to them as well as a sign of friendship and good will.

Recently during an afternoon presentation on Tuesday, March 19, approximately 200 fifth through eighth grade students at Flandreau Public School listened to and watched Pam Jensen from Utah, and two local student volunteers, Jackie Allen, middle school and Alycia Rose, FCCLA Chairperson, demonstrate life skills of making wholesome wheat bread from scratch into cinnamon rolls, braided bread, and practice throwing pizza dough into a rounded crust. Students used math, science and technique skills during the demonstration. Then at the conclusion of the presentation, bread making kits prepared the week ahead by Family & Consumer Sciences students, FCCLA members, and Mrs. Weatherly’s 7th grade reading class, were handed out to each student so they could make bread at home. “This is a great experience for students to learn the art of making bread sponsored by King Arthur Flour Company from Vermont. The kits are valued over $6 and were supplied by the King Arthur Flour Company.” stated Mrs. Weatherly.

The King Arthur Bread Baking Program has been in existence for over 20 years. This American company, now employee-owned, has been in existence for more than 200 years in Vermont. They specialize in supplying US flours, recipes, and tools for making quality whole grain products to online customers and area grocery stores.
