Schools starting food trucks to expand battle against student hunger
Many school districts in the Cincinnati area are going to historic lengths to bring nutritional meals into the communities where some of their poorer students live.
Now that battle against hunger has gone mobile.
Last week saw Middletown City Schools unveil the district’s first food truck, part of a $225,000 program to feed the district’s needy students by going to them on non-school days. The large, brightly colored truck will travel to some of Middletown’s low-income communities this summer to deliver free lunches to children and teens who during the school year depend on such meals from their school cafeterias.
