Food Truck Aims to Boost District High School Lunch Participation

Boulder Valley (CO) Schools is rotating mobile eatery to its five high school sites one day a week.

Boulder Valley (CO) School District is rotating its own food truck to each of its five district high schools one day a week in order to provide students with an alternative to the cafeteria fare and raise the 20% high school lunch participation rate, reports the Daily Camera. The truck, purchased with a $75,000 donation from Whole Foods, dishes up such selections as made-to-order chicken pesto sandwiches, BBQ pork sliders, pesto and provolone grilled cheese sandwiches and burgers, all available as parts of reimbursable meals. The mobile eatery, which also makes a stop at the district administrative offices three days a week to serve staff there, takes cash and credit cards payment as well as school lunch account and federal reimbursement for students qualifying for free/reduced-price meals.
