Summary

Providing nutritious lunch is an important feature of Escuela Adelante. For some students, this may be the most nutrition they get all day. We currently make do with the small kitchen that was already on-site when we moved, but it's far from adequate for our expanding student body. The learning kitchen and garden will help Escuela Adelante impart food education and environmental education through project-based learning. The students take part in growing, harvesting, and preparing food.

Challenge

Escuela Adelante does not have adequate space to cook and serve nutritious lunches to its expanding student body. We plan to add a grade each year and we barely have enough seating space for our current program at lunchtime.

Solution

The beautiful open-air, thatched roof cafeteria will facilitate healthy, comfortable and efficient lunch experiences for the classes, and will double as a community space for meetings and events. The large kitchen will allow staff to produce enough food for all the students. It will also serve as a learning kitchen, where children and adults will benefit from cooking classes that utilize healthy ingredients harvested on-site.

Long-Term Impact

Escuela Adelante proposes a curriculum that integrates food production, preservation and preparation into its math, science, literature and sociology curriculum, from preschool through to secondary school. We aim to instill our students with knowledge of healthy and sustainable food production techniques, as well as nutrition and cooking skills that will encourage healthy habits throughout their lives.
