This is a great way to stretch food costs of chicken marsala, yet enjoy all the same flavors. We all agreed it was fantastic when we ran this protype for the the business. Here it is on our week 3 menu with homemade caesar salad, store-bought french bread and a homemade cupcake from our cupcake lab this week.



The Foods 2 do an excellent job with packaging and presentation. This week we delivered 12 meals and sold 5 in the classroom.

Can’t you just taste the marsala chicken?

Underground Cafe is ready for Friday delivery!


Two weeks ago the Foods 2 class was introduced to entrepreneurship and we dived into our catering business called the Underground Cafe. We sell $5 lunches to the teachers at Owen.

The kids were excited about their new positions that they had to apply for. This week we put those positions into place through management, treasury, secretary, packaging and publicity. Everyone had a flurry of jobs on Friday’s deliver day.

Our menu was a success selling 20 lunches of baked ziti, salad and garlic bread. The kids are learning a lot about the hard work of a small business.

They did a great job preparing the to go boxes the day before.


The final count before heading out for delivery on the first and second floor. We have two carts and two delivery teams assembled and ready to go.


I’m quite proud of their first meal and accomplishment, raising $100

Now it’s up to the treasurer to see how much money they earned after the food costs.

Thank you teachers and staff who supported the Underground Cafe this week!!!!


Week 1 took off with a flurry during our first week of food preparation and delivery and we are now posting our menu for week 2.
