In my classroom, the students are focused on preparing for a career and building life skills in culinary arts. Our school is home to many Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs that provide opportunities for job preparation after high school.
Our school is a large, urban, public high school with almost 2,000 ethnically, culturally, and socioeconomically diverse students.
Our students come from a variety of different economic backgrounds, with a majority of our students receiving free lunch. Our school is also one of the most ethnically diverse schools in the area. Our students speak a multitude of languages including English, Spanish, Tagalog, and more.
For a culinary class, being able to try out new food is important in order for students to be able to make better choices. We have many taste testings and cooking demonstrations planned, but won't be able to do them without any paper goods. We would like small tasting spoons and souffle cups so that students can sample and make comparisons of different types of beverages and snacks. The students want to make bread and requested that we have some toasters for when we do it. The toaster bags are reusable and should last throughout the year.
All of these items were selected with the idea in mind of ordering compostable and reusable items that are best for the environment.
The students are very motivated and have a lot of great ideas. If we can supplement our program with some basics, we will have more funds to put towards trying and buying new foods. Your donations to this project will help them to explore the world of food and nutrition with a hands-on approach.
