So Good Pupusas in Durham, N.C.

In 2015, Cecilia Polanco wanted to start a scholarship fund for undocumented students, but needed a sustainable way to monetize the fund. She founded So Good Pupusas to raise money and use the revenue to support her non-profit, Pupusas for Education, which provides the scholarships.

Channeling her cultural capital, she set out on a tasty mission: to serve “a taste of El Salvador with a side of social justice.”
