School Bus to Food Truck Project Awarded $25K Grant

The SkillsUSA grant program, which funds projects for students learning trades, awarded CATEC $25,000 to help pay for the conversion of a retired school bus into a food truck.

The grant puts CATEC well on its way to funding the school-bus-turned-food-truck project. CATEC was also awarded a $5,000 grant from the Shannon Foundation in August.

CATEC’s food truck project involves students from the school’s many different programs. Culinary students will prepare the food, and auto tech students will outfit the bus for service.  The bus project will also involve health and medical students, who will plan the menu, and students in the Cisco lab, who will design a program to track sales. Students will also host a “fill the bus” food drive benefiting the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank.

CATEC is one of 31 schools nationwide to receive a SkillsUSA grant. This year’s SkillsUSA’s grants were funded by Lowe’s and given to projects that build the skills of students learning trades. To apply for a grant, students completed a written application, detailing why their project is important, how it will be conducted and the outcomes and benefits. Finalists were selected based on their proposal and plans.

To learn more about the SkillsUSA, see their website.
