Brown Rudnick Charitable Foundation Grant Helps COMPASS School Spice Up Culinary Arts Program
The Brown Rudnick Charitable Foundation Corp., a
nonprofit, tax-exempt entity established by attorneys from Brown Rudnick LLP, has awarded
a Community Grant to the COMPASS to purchase a
Point Of Sale (POS) computer system for the COMPASS Café, part of our Culinary Arts Program. The new system will replace an outdated cash register, improving overall efficiency. More importantly, students will learn to use the systems and equipment that are used in most food service establishments, increasing their chances of employment.
According to grant applicant and culinary arts teacher, Chris Derocher, While public schools
provide funding, that amount is fixed and covers only the services required by the
legislation. Thanks to The Brown Rudnick Charitable Foundation, the POS system will enhance the school’s efforts to bring technology to our Culinary Arts Training Program.
Al Wallis, Executive Director of the Brown Rudnick Charitable Foundation Corp., said, We
are delighted to support the culinary arts program at COMPASS School, which provides
training in marketable skills and education to economically disadvantaged and disabled
students, helping them to be ready to enter the workforce.
