Thanks and giving: Bake For Good and Turkey Trot

Nov 5th, 2019 | Category: News

This month is a special time for giving in the community. Check out these three ways to help while having fun!

Thanksgiving Bake for Good: Join the Bread Lab and King Arthur Flour to bake for a cause, as they offer two free classes this month. First, the Bake For Good: Kids! edition is for school age children and their families who will spend the evening learning to make yeast bread from scratch. All baked goods will then be donated to Helping Hands Food Bank. Each registration covers up to four family members. Snacks and samples will be available, too. The class meets Thursday, Nov. 14, from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Bread Lab in Burlington.

Then, free pie and roll baking classes will be offered at several times on Tuesday, Nov. 26 including 9 a.m., 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. All ingredients and instruction are provided. Everything baked will be donated to Helping Hands Food Bank, and all goodwill monetary donations to the Food Bank will be matched by King Arthur. Registration for these classes is available at King Arthur Flour: https://www.kingarthurflour.com/baking-school/washington.

Turkey Trot 5k: The Greater Bellingham Running Club (GBRC) presents this 5K Fun Run on Saturday, Nov. 23, with all proceeds donated to the Bellingham Food Bank. Register online at https://www.gbrc.net under events. Awards given for top three overall male and female runners and awards for top three in each age group (5 year increments). Strollers welcome; no dogs allowed. Chip-timing by Budu Racing.
