On March 30, seventh-graders at Ray Middle School brought in more than 300 loaves of homemade bread to donate to the Baldwinsville Community Food Pantry, PEACE, Inc., Meals on Wheels, St. Mary's Human Development and the Downtown Emergency Food Pantry in Syracuse. The bread donation was made possible by The King Arthur Flour Company, which donated most of the supplies needed to make the bread.
On March 26, Paula Gray, a senior instructor with King Arthur, presented the company's Life Skills Bread Baking Program to Ray's seventh-graders. With the help of student volunteers Kevin Carson and Sarah Allen, Gray demonstrated each step of the bread making process.
This was the fifth time that King Arthur visited Ray Middle School.
