SONNENPRAIRIE (WKOW) – A sixth grader from Sun Prairie discovered the baking bug during the pandemic and is now using her talents to help her fellow students.

Keena Schroeder has a cheesecake shop called “Bug’s Bakery” – Bug is her nickname.

Schröder and her father thought about how they could use the money they brought in.

She takes $ 5 from the sale of each cheesecake and donates it to the school district’s Hunger Hero campaign.

“He raised the Hunger Heroes, which means it’s a campaign to raise money for kids who can’t afford lunch at school. And I thought that sounds really good, especially because it’s like food and I make cheesecake, “he told Schröder.

On Monday evening, Schröder presented the school board with a check for USD 1,000. The young baker will continue to bake cheesecakes as long as people want to buy them.
