Rising to the occasion at the Seventh Annual Bake Fresh Friday March 29

Mott Community College (MCC) Culinary Arts students know how to rise to the occasion to help others – especially on Bake Fresh Friday! Students and faculty from the MCC Baking and Pastry Arts program will roll up their sleeves, literally, for the seventh year in a row, to teach residents at Carriage Town Ministries (CTM) some basic baking skills and produce freshly baked breads and desserts for those residing in and visiting CTM for dinner Friday, March 29.
The students, under the direction of Chef David Miller, will work one-on-one with CTM residents from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. as part of a Service Learning project. “Bake Fresh Friday is the quintessential service learning project,” said Debra Gibes, faculty director of Experiential Learning at MCC. “Teaching someone else how to do what they have learned in the classroom reinforces the lesson for our students, while also making a difference in the lives of those most in need.”
Service Learning is a method of learning that combines classroom instruction with meaningful community service. It emphasizes critical thinking and personal reflection, and fosters civic responsibility.
The project is funded by a matching grant from Rotary District 6330 and the Genesee Valley Rotary Club. The grant provides all the baking ingredients and some equipment needed for the day. Genesee Valley Rotarians will be on hand to help stir, mix and knead.
