Bassett students learn to bake healthy recipes
Action for Healthy Kids, in partnership with ALDI, awarded Bassett Elementary a grant to create an event aimed at mobilizing school professionals, families and communities to take actions that lead to healthy eating, physical activity and healthier schools where kids thrive. The Bassett PTA designed, coordinated, and empowered the inaugural Bassett Baking Blast, which took place on April 18.
Mayor Dennis Clough, principal Jim Sanfilippo, head chef Linda Martin, law enforcement personnel, firefighters, ALDI volunteers, AFHK Midwestern Regional Manager Ashley Green, parents, and of course the students of Bassett Elementary baked and enjoyed 19 unique recipes. All chefs were awarded business cards for their entrepreneurial spirit and commitment to the project.
“Wow! This event was amazing! We hope we get the opportunity to enjoy it again,” said one parent departing with a child radiating with joy and pride. Many thanks again to all who contributed to the success of the event. We look forward to many more opportunities in the years to come.
I am a proud resident of Westlake, Ohio and thrilled to celebrate the many opportunities and festivities that exist in the area.
