Fifteen-year-old Linda is one of the 46 Johnson High School students who participated in Cookie Cart’s pilot programming. After 12 weeks of after-school sessions focused on customer service, financial literacy, and career readiness, Linda and her peers are prepared to become the leaders of Cookie Cart when it opens in April 2018. Linda confidently states, “I know Cookie Cart will have a positive, everlasting impact on my community. Whether if it’s just 2 people or my whole neighborhood, it’s going to be meaningful because my experience at Cookie Cart has meant so much to me.” 

Cookie Cart is Growing for Good and expanding to Saint Paul. We need your help to convert a vacant grocery store at 946 Payne Avenue into a safe and nurturing place where Linda and her peers can learn lasting and meaningful work, life and leadership skills.
