Growing Leaders Business Elective
The Growing Leaders 7th and 8th grade elective class at Willard Middle School runs a small business that cooks and sells bi-monthly meals to the community.
Students are involved in every aspect of the business from accounting, marketing, branding, to growing food, harvesting and cooking.
In our 2014/15 pilot year, we endeavored to raise $20,000 over the school year. Astoundingly, our students exceeded all expectations and generated over $30,000 in funds to help sustain the program.
In the 2017-2018 school year, we raised $65,000!
As we enter the 2o18/19 school year, the veteran and new students are pumped up to tackle their $75,000 goal.
All proceeds from the meals go directly back to Growing Leaders to support all our programming.
