This March, the Kansas Wheat Commision is teaming up with the Home Baking Association to promote Bake and Take Month. For more than 40 years, Bake and Take Month has been an opportunity to celebrate relationships with friends and family by baking and sharing treats.
“The purpose of Bake and Take Month is to encourage participants to bake a product made from wheat and take it to a beighbor, friend or relative,” said Cindy Falk, nutrition educator of Kansas Wheat and coordinator of Bake and Take Month.
Participants who share their stories of the Bake and Take experience with the Kansas Wheat Commission by April 15 will be entered into a drawing for a “book bundle” prize including Home Baking Association’s popular “Baking with Friends” cookbook by Kansas authors Charlene Patton and Sharon Davis. The prize will also include “Kansas Gold,” a 50-year history of the Kansas Wheat Commission complete with historical recipes and a $100 King Arthur Flour gift card donated by the Kansas Wheat Commission.
