Conklin, NY (WBNG Binghamton) How many of you wish you could be a little bit more crafty in the kitchen? Some local students can now say they are, and it's for a good cause.

It's a story to warm your oven and warm your heart.

Students in the Susquehanna Valley School District are baking their daily bread for the needy in our community.

With the help of the King Arthur Flour Program, each student will bake two loaves of bread. They'll keep one, and donate the other to the Community Hunger Outreach Warehouse, or CHOW.

Considering the economy and the flood, there is a great need now more than ever for donations.

These kids understand that.

"We are sending the bread that we are making today to CHOW, we are sending a loaf of bread to CHOW, and I hope it's really good for them," said Courtney Page, a fifth grader.

When asked why it's so important to do this, fourth-grader Patrick Enright said, "they may be homeless, or they don't have any food to eat, or anything like that."

Each student receives a kit that they'll bring home to work on their bread loaves.

They'll rise to the occasion by bringing their finished product to donate Monday.

The King Arthur Program is based in Vermont, but travels across the country to schools to show students the art of baking, and the art of giving, as well.
