One exciting development cooking up at Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District is its newest addition to the lunch fare offered to students: a shiny new food truck.
Unveiled Tuesday through a soft opening for staff members, the truck has the capacity to feed at least 200 hungry students. It will be permanently parked at Uvalde High School.
With an enrollment of 1,251, the UHS campus will welcome the additional kitchen help the truck will bring.
As an extension of the Community Eligibility Program which provides enrolled students free breakfast and lunch, the food truck’s offerings are free of charge.
UHS students have as many as 18 different culinary options to choose from each day when deciding what to eat. The new food truck will select one of those options to serve students. Though only one is operational at present, the district plans to deploy a second food truck in the future, which will roam to different campuses.
