Storefront Academy South Bronx is a public charter school which opened to students and families in fall 2015. Located at 609 Jackson Avenue of the South Bronx, SASB educates urban youth of all learning abilities, and in the 2018-2019 hosts students in kindergarten through fourth grade all from low income families, many of whom are homeless.
Storefront Academy seeks to provide children of varied academic strengths quality educational opportunities, preparing them academically, socially and emotionally to become critical thinkers, high-achieving students and well-rounded individuals.
“New York is so big and yet it can be so small. It’s so easy to be relegated to your own neighborhood. The gift this kitchen is providing our families is so much larger than food…it’s access. Access to healthy options, access to building relationships and strengthening families over the meals we will create in it and greatest of all, access to sharing each other’s cultures.” Nicole Richardson-Garcia, School Principle of Storefront Academy, South Bronx.
With an expected 250 children attending this fall, the addition of a kitchen provides the school not only with the means for cooking nutritious meals on site but will serve as a focus for the teaching about nutrition, healthy living and home economics.
“We are glad to be partnering with Storefront academy to give these children a happy and healthy childhood, education, and a meaningful future” says Perry Hiiman NYKB, Co-owner.
It is planned that the kitchen will also be utilized for family breakfasts, community events and family-oriented nutrition and healthy cooking classes.
“With the partnership with NYKB, we are sure that the local community and New York City will become aware of how NYKB fulfills its mission of working with the community and supporting the education and health of all New Yorkers, including children who face significant challenges.” Says Jonathan Stearns, Chairman of the Board of Trustees.
