Students at Pioneer Middle School in DuPont got a lesson in baking bread from scratch earlier this month, compliments of the Vermont-based King Arthur Flour Co.

The program showed students how to bake their own loaves of bread for eating and donating. They learned about the importance of whole grains, as well as some basic science and math that goes into baking.

Students were given ingredients donated by the company to make their own bread at home, and asked to bring one loaf back to school to donate to Tacoma Rescue Mission and My Sister’s Pantry in Tacoma.

Students donated nearly 300 loaves to the food programs, according to a news release.
