COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - A food truck will soon be part of the lunch time choices for students at Columbia high schools.
The district says the truck will bring more food options and help with overcrowded lunch rooms at its high schools. The district ordered the truck Monday.
Laina Fullum, nutrition services director for the district, says the pork and chicken offered on the truck will meet U.S. Department of Agriculture standards for school lunches and will be available for the free or reduced-lunch program.
The Columbia Daily Tribune reports the truck will cost the district about $30,000.
The district also is offering an allergy line of foods at its schools. Chef Brad Faith says he hopes to create 10 items that are for nearly all children with allergies.
