Windermere Foundation Presents Funding to
Franklin High School Foods Program
The Donation will be Used to Purchase Food Supplies
PORTLAND, Ore. – November 4, 2014 – Windermere Stellar recently presented a check at its Northeast Portland branch to Franklin High School Foods Program, where low-income students learn how to cook nutritious meals and then serve them to homeless students in the school.
Founded by high school teacher Heidi Leineweber, Franklin High School Foods Program was designed so that kids are helping kids. The $3,000 Windermere Foundation donation will be used to purchase food supplies for the 90-minute teaching labs that are held bi-weekly throughout the school year. Low-income students learn about healthy food preparation and either share their creations with their hungry classmates or take the meals home to their families. In 2013, more than 150 students learned cooking skills and nutrition through the Franklin High School Foods Program.
Windermere has a long-standing tradition of assisting low-income children and families and giving to the community. In addition to helping Franklin High School Foods Program, Windermere associates participate in annual community service projects and donate a portion of every commission to the Windermere Foundation – a nonprofit organization that has raised and donated more than $2 million to programs supporting low-income children and families in the Portland metro and north Oregon coast area.
