ATTN: ALL CHEF/FOODIE FRIENDS/PEOPLE w CONNECTIONS!
Hi all! My name is Elyse Wilson, and I teach at an alternative school serving over-age and under-credited young adults (ages 16-21) in a low-income, high need school district in Brooklyn. I am starting a culinary program to teach the fundamentals of traditional french cooking, baking, discipline, and kitchen etiquette; skills that will directly translate to a potential career in the culinary arts. This will be the first after school arts program offered at our school and I can’t wait to give my students this incredible opportunity. But I need your help!
I received a grant from donorschoose.org, which took care of the majority of supplies and appliances, but we still need uniforms (chefs coats, shoes, hats), cutting boards, and an array of knives (santuko, chefs knife, serrated, paring). We will need enough supplies for 8 students who will be participating in this unique program.
A bit about my students:
