In 2011, Maggie and Rob Wasserman created a culinary competition on the playground of The William M Meredith Elementary School. Their children attended the school, and it needed a new computer lab. They invited several of their restauranteur friends to duke-it-out with their best burger. The invitations were widely accepted, and the community had a great time. The best part- the event raised enough money to outfit the School with the latest technology.
Upon reflection of its success, the Wassermann’s committed to lead an annual event and help other schools within Philadelphia achieve their technology goals. Burger Brawl was born!
The Burger Brawl team partnered with The Fund for the Philadelphia School District (“The Fund”) to gain guidance on selecting technology and curriculum programs in areas that had the most need. The Fund accepts proposals from schools within the District for funding on curriculum development and technology advancement programs.
In recent years several studies have found that Philadelphia has an elevated illiteracy rate when compared to other areas. The Philadelphia Center for Literacy estimated in 2014 that 40% of Philadelphia adults struggle with a low literacy rate which means it is difficult to fill out a job application, read Doctor’s instructions and help their children with homework, for example. The Center argues further that without literacy, it is impossible to break a pattern of inter-generational poverty which defines several of our inner-city neighborhoods.
