OSU's FAPC Promotes Bake and Take Month in MarchThu, 07 Mar 2013 13:50:22 CST
Oklahoma is often recognized for being a leading state in wheat production. As a result, Oklahoma State University’s Robert M. Kerr Food & Agricultural Products Center is excited to promote and recognize this commodity by celebrating Bake and Take Month in March.
The purpose of the Bake and Take promotion is to encourage participants to bake a product made from wheat and take it to a neighbor, friend or relative, said Renée Albers-Nelson, FAPC milling and baking specialist.
“The Bake and Take promotion is a wonderful way to get our young people to experience the joys of baking and understanding the importance of the cereal grain and wheat, grown in our state,” Nelson said. “I encourage individuals who want to participate in the promotion to purchase Oklahoma-milled flour.”
Bake and Take began in 1970 by the Kansas Wheathearts, an auxiliary organization of the Kansas Association of Wheat Growers, as a community service event to celebrate the wheat harvest in Sumner County, Kan. Even though the Kansas Wheathearts disbanded in 2001, Kansas Wheat continues these efforts today.
According to Kansas Wheat, the annual Bake and Take month invites home bakers of all ages to slow down, relax and embrace community spirit by baking homemade goodies and sharing them with friends, neighbors or folks who may not be able to bake themselves. 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.
