Ginger bread houses for a good cause

The bakery team at Ann’s Independent Grocer are making ginger bread houses to raffle off.

The bakery team at Ann’s Independent Grocer are making ginger bread houses to raffle off.

The workers behind  the bakery counter at Ann’s Independent Grocer have embarked on a project in support of the Fernie Food Bank.

The team built one model of each of the varieties that the store is stocking for the holidays, and is raffling them off.

To enter, simply bring a non-perishable food item or toy to the bakery.

“What we are going to do is we are going to take each ginger bread model that we sell at the store and we are going to build them and decorate them and have them wrapped up all pretty at the Green Petal and then when people bring us a non-perishable food item or a toy, they get an entry into the draw for the ginger bread houses,” said Laura Jordan, manager of the bakery.

Jordan estimates that the team will make seven houses in total, complete with all of the sugary decorations. They will be on display at the grocery store until Dec. 11, when the draw will be made.

All of the food items and toys collected will be donated to the Fernie Food Bank.
