My Project

I am a teacher of students in a special education high school. The students in my class help run the school-wide cafe. They stock and sell items from a snack cart, make and sell iced coffee and cook meals for the entire school. This is all very hard to do considering the lack of cooking supplies we have to work with.

Students would be able to use the supplies to not only make meals in school, but also enhance their daily living skills and become more independent on making meals for themselves.

Mrs. Pullano
Grades 9-12
More than three‑quarters of students from low‑income households

At this school, more than 50% of students are Black, Latino, and/or Native American, and more than 50% come from low-income households. Learn how your donation to this school supports a more equitable education.
