Ennthusiastic second grade students of the Hebrew Academy (RASG) in Miami Beach took their parents’ orders and served them food such as pasta, salad, grilled cheese, waffles, s’mores and brownies at an end of the year math project called “Mathelicious.”
The project was a restaurant called “Beauty and the Feast Café” opened for a day and intended to teach the students the importance of math in their everyday lives as they not only took orders, but totaled the charges and separated tips. The students prepared lunch items and turned the classroom into a café while serving as hosts/hostesses, waiters, kitchen staff and cashiers.
Money raised at this restaurant is donated to the families of Jewish Community Services’ Kosher Food Bank in North Miami Beach.
