Baking to end world hunger.

After learning how hunger affects one billion people worldwide, students from a tiny Inuit community on the Arctic Circle baked cinnamon buns, cupcakes and tarts to help end global hunger. In less than an hour, the Grade 9 students from the Tusarvik School in Repulse Bay, Nunavut, raised almost $400.

The money was donated to Canadian Foodgrains Bank (CFE), a Winnipeg-based Christian group that provides food and aid to developing countries. The Primate's World Relief and Development Fund (PWRDF) is a member. In a CFB press release, Pauline Kridluar, one of 13 students who took part, said, "It's the Inuit way to share."
