Courtenay students donate baking to food bank

Students made 12 different varieties of cookies and 14 dozen of each.

VANIER SECONDARY STUDENTS donated a lot of baking to the food bank.

When entering the room of the G.P. Vanier Grade 11 and 12 foods classes, marvellous aromas, tastes and sights will meet the senses.

These are the scents of homemade baking that is to be donated to the food bank hampers this December.

The students of these classes have been generous with their time and effort. They made 12 different varieties of cookies and 14 dozen of each.

This is the second year in a row the Home Ec teachers have done this with their students. On top of the homemade goods, each teacher in Vanier has also gathered up food in their B Block classes for a total of 60 food hampers.

Each basket also includes donations of lovely homemade soaps from Hornby Island Soaps. G.P. Vanier gives a big pat on the back to all of the teachers and students who have given up their time and effort to support the food bank and community this holiday season.
