The Wallingford Education Foundation (WEF) has helped fund signature projects representing well over $120,000 in WEF raised campaigns. It assisted in establishing the Cook’s Table Restaurant at Lyman Hall High School by funding restaurant-grade kitchen equipment, furniture, linens, tableware and more. The WEF led a community wide fund raising campaign to update the Mahan Planetarium and Learning Dome at Sheehan High School. Wallingford students and residents, as well as students and residents from other communities, benefit from the use of this premier facility. The WEF is committed to continuing its support of large dollar requests from Wallingford Public Schools.
The “Healthy Drive” food truck, one of the many signature projects the WEF has helped fund, is operated by students in Wallingford Public School’s culinary arts program.
