CPCC's bakery wants to feed you

Aspire Bakery & Bistro, the student-supported business at Central Piedmont Community College's Harris Campus, will hold an open house from 4-7:30 p.m. Feb. 28 for the public, faculty, staff, alumni and students (is there anyone that list doesn't cover?).

The idea behind Aspire is that baking and pastry students will sell food they've made including soups, salads, sandwiches, baked goods, desserts and handmade chocolates. Proceeds benefit student  activities, scholarships and extracurricular activities. The bistro also gives students business training, with requirements that they serve one week as an employee and one week as a manager.

Aspire's regular hours are 9 a.m.-7 p.m. Monday-Thursday and 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Fridays during the fall and spring semesters. The Harris Campus is at 3210 CPCC Harris Campus Drive, near Morris Field Drive and Billy Graham Parkway. Details:
