Chicago High School for Agricultural Sciences & Vaughn High School Students at the Eli’s Cheesecake/Wright College Farmers Market

Eli’s is very proud of our long term partnership with the Chicago High School for Agricultural Sciences and Vaughn High School.

For our Thursday Farmers Market, we were delighted to have special needs students from both schools participating in the Market. This is just one more example of how programs in food, agriculture and science can benefit a wide range of students.

Students from Vaughn brought crafts celebrating the Bears first game this Sunday and students from CHSAS brought produce from the farm at the school as well as bottles of the honey harvested by the students and used in our dessserts.
