Duval County Schools Launches Student-Designed "Brainfood" Food Truck

Mobile eatery will rotate visits to the district's high school sites to promote healthy meal options.

Duval County (Fla.) Schools and Chartwells-Thompson School Dining Services, which operates the district's school meal program, have rolled out a food truck called Brainfood designed by one of the district's students, reports the Daily Meal. High school sophomore Jillian Cruickshank won a contest to create Brainfood's look—as well as $500—while the menu, consisting of options like Buffalo chicken mac n’ cheese, a garlic pepper beef bowl, and a healthy Cajun chicken wrap was extensively taste-tested by students while meeting federal school meal guidelines. The truck will visit district high schools on a rotating basis to promote healthy meal options.
