The newly finished 3rd wing of the La Carreta secondary school Instituto Augusto C. Sandino in La Carreta has a kitchen with a built-in stove. This will allow the teachers, students and parent helpers to prepare lunches for the kids, utilizing vegetables being grown in the school gardens.

The community designed this school to ultimately have an agronomy and animal husbandry curriculum in addition to basic education. The kitchen is intended to facilitate preparation of market vegetables in the future.
