Ice Cream Inventors Series
This month’s menu is a little different to most. We are working with elementary schools all around Portland to curate this set of flavors. There are three schools located near each of our scoop shops who we reached out to and are working closely with. The schools are; Abernethy Elementary, in SE Portland; Vernon Elementary, in NE Portland; and Chapman Elementary, in NW Portland. At each school, we have teamed up with the local PTA’s and teachers to be able to make this Ice Cream Inventing “Assignment” fun and rewarding for the students we work with. Tyler, our head ice cream maker, has presented at school assemblies, staff meetings, and more to help the students and teachers unlock those creative juices! Because of the amazing work by our students and the great flavors that are coming out of this collaboration, at Salt & Straw we will be able to donate 15% of proceeds from these ice cream flavors to the schools that invented them.
