Donna Cavato, Director of Culture and Wellness

Originally from Chicago, Donna found her true home in New Orleans fourteen years ago. Donna first joined FirstLine Schools in 2006 as the Founding Director of Edible Schoolyard New Orleans. She holds a Master's of Urban Planning and Public Policy from the University of Illinois at Chicago and brings 25 years of experience in non-profit management and youth and community program development to FirstLine. Being part of the process to develop the potential and aspirations of our students is what inspires her to do this work. She believes that when we are successful at creating great schools for all children, our city will be forever changed for the better.

ESYNOLA founding executive director, Donna Cavato, said, "The W.K. Kellogg Foundation's support enabled replication and growth to scale the program and staff across our schools," helping FirstLine reach as many students in their schools as possible.

"If children have a place at the table, then they have a place in the world," is a mantra that Cavato, now director of culture and wellness for FirstLine Schools, instills in the staff and students of FirstLine Schools.
