Northridge students bake pies for charity

MIDDLEBURY — On Sept. 22, students from Northridge High School’s advanced nutrition and wellness classes turned their baking skills into cash for the Middlebury Food Bank.

A baking contest was held as part of the Middlebury Summer Festival. The students in Shari Woodruff’s classes and members of the public competed in a pie baking contest, with the pies auctioned by volunteer James Smith. The proceeds totalling $475 were donated to the food bank.

Adult winners

Winners in the adult division were Cheryl Baker placing first with an Old Fashion Cream Pie and Doris Rudloff placing second with an Apple Crumb Pie.

Students competed as groups, using Woodruff’s Canola Oil Pie Crust recipe and then followed the basics learned in class for making fruit pies. One group also made a pecan pie recipe from karosyrup.com.

Students winners

Poll

There has been discussion at West Goshen Elementary School to require mandatory student uniforms in the future. How do you feel about the prospect of mandatory student uniforms in a public school environment?

I think it’s an excellent idea that is way overdue
