The Cruisin Café and Nutrition Express is both a traveling classroom and a foodservice delivery system for the Chesapeake Public Schools (CPS) in Virginia. The dual purpose repurposed school bus provides nutrition education to the district’s 40,000 students over the course of the school year and then during the summer months and holiday breaks it travels to various locations across the city to deliver USDA-compliant meals to children.
