Capital School District in Dover, Del., has a new food truck, one that will serve lunch to students during summer break, Delaware State News reports.
The truck will travel through the district every Monday through Thursday over the break and will offer lunch to anyone 18 and under.
The district offers weekly free lunch at the Capital City Farmers Market during the summer; however, school officials hope that the mobility of the food truck will help reach children who are unable to make it to the market, as well as enable staff to provide food that requires more preparation and heat.
A year in the making, the truck, which cost an estimated $147,000, was purchased using federal school lunch program grants. Students had a hand in designing the artwork, slogan and name of the truck through a competition.
The truck made its initial test run on Martin Luther King Jr. Day to promote the district’s summer lunch program.
