District hoping to transform bus into food truck

Colorado foodservice department wants to serve more students by taking meals mobile.

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich.—One area school district may be turning an old piece of equipment into a way to raise money for the school and serve up some delicious food.

TCAPS is working on making an old school bus into a food bus.

“It's just a creative way to generate more fundraising opportunities for everybody in the school,” said Tom Freitas, TCAPS Food and Nutrition Services Director. “Obviously with times as tough as they, we want to give people more opportunities.”

The bus would be stationed at all kinds of TCAPS events, from football games to school musicals and plays.

Different student organizations would help work the bus for each event and at the end of the night, that group gets the proceeds.
