Lettuce Have A Printer to Help Us Sell Healthier Snacks
Help me give my students a color printer so they can express their written language and artistic skills in color to sell the food items they personally prepare as a part of our class business.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My students are an amazing group of young men and women who are between 15 and 18 years old. My students are advocates for their needs and all have a very profound idea of what they want their post-school lives to look like and what they need to do to reach their goals.
They do not use their disabilities as excuses, but rather view them as obstacles to overcome on their path to success.
I see myself as a coach to help them succeed and reach their goals.
I am fortunate enough to work in a school which values this principle first and foremost. In our school, students learn to work and work to learn.
In the Green Cafe, students grow healthy vegetables and cook for the entire school body. There is a focus on vegetarian eating and how to take care of your body and well-being. My students are constantly wearing chef uniforms and are elbows-deep in cooking and gardening tasks.
Having a color printer will allow them to gain vocational experience in using their communication skills to market healthier food and keep our program running smoothly.
We rely on the sales of our food items to create revenue to support the program. A printer will greatly facilitate this.
