Heating Up: Supplies for an After School Cooking Club

My students need kitchen supplies for an After School Cooking Club. We need a mixer, pots and more.

My Students

At our campus, academics come first, and our core classes are instrumental in preparing our students to be college-ready. However, we also need extracurricular programs, particularly those that emphasize the development of important life skills.

Our students were greatly impacted by the devastation of Hurricane Harvey, and we seek to provide better access to enrichment and good nutrition for our students.

Our school has a tremendous focus on academic success and rigor. As such, students begin earning high school credit as early as the 8th grade, and all high school students are required to take AP classes. Where we excel in core academics, we lack in extracurricular opportunities. We want to create an after school Cooking Club to teach our students the importance of teamwork and how to prepare healthy meals.

My Project

My students will use these supplies to hold weekly Cooking Club meetings in our After School Program. Having access to such a variety of kitchen equipment will allow my students to engage meaningfully with the culinary arts.

Many of my students suffered great losses as a result of Hurricane Harvey, making for a very difficult year and lost opportunities.

Enrichment activities such as cooking can be very therapeutic for children recovering from traumatic experiences, and my students are eager to get cooking!

We are very lucky to have a self-contained classroom with a stove and sink in our school, but without vital supplies, we won't be able to hold cooking classes.
