The South Dakota Wheat Commission is encouraging individuals and groups to share their time and talent by participating in the annual Bake and Take Day, celebrated on the 4th Saturday in March.  It is an opportunity for families and service groups to gather in the kitchen to prepare gifts of fresh-baked wheat foods.  These gifts can bring joy to relatives, friends, co-workers, neighbors, the elderly and shut-ins.  Surprising someone with home baked foods makes both the “giver” and the “receiver” feel special.  It’s fun and easy to show how much you care with a baked food and visit.

Participants who write in to tell about their Bake and Take Day activities will be entered into a random drawing for $50 cash in one of four categories.  All eligible entries collected via e-mail and U.S. mail by April 17th will be included.  Participants need to indicate a category — youth individual (4-17), youth group, adult individual (17 plus), or adult group — on the entry form.  If no category is indicated on the form, it will be placed in the category that most fits the information provided.

To enter the drawing, participants need to send their entry form to:  South Dakota Wheat Commission, PO Box 549, Pierre, SD  57501.  Or email to:  Include any community service aspects, and comments regarding how the activity strengthened the bonds between individuals.
