JENISON, Mich. -- The grocery store is not somewhere most people want to be right now. Many of the shelves are empty of the staples, but an 8-year-old girl from Jenision, Michigan, is hoping to change that.

Everleigh Schuster has been baking bread with her grandma, Mary Mapes, every day since she's been out of school.

“I started making bread, because it was out in the stores,” Schuster said.

She says she hopes this effort helps those who may not be able to brave the grocery store right now.

“Because of the coronavirus and everyone is going nuts,” Schuster said.

Schuster said she and her grandma have quite the system going. They've even memorized the recipe.
