Columbus Food Truck Hits the Road- Free Food Program for Kids in Summer

Franklin County has jumped on-board with an amazing new opportunity to expand their program offering Free Food to children- with a food truck. This mobile unit plans to hit the streets every week day to deliver children a well balanced meal. It is understood that safety is an issue for many working parents, especially during the summer months. Many parents and guardians ask that their children stay close to home, which is why many are welcoming this new and improved  delivery system. This food truck will allow the county to reach more children in need.

AllaCart Manufacturing proudly designed and fabricated this custom food truck on behalf of the department. This portable distribution vehicle features everything  needed to safely and effectively deliver nourishment to local areas. As a reputable manufacturer for mobile vending businesses across the country, Allacart ensures that this vehicle will be built to last for many years to come. The graphic design features a strawberry and vines with children climbing to the top. This symbolizes how nourishment will assist the local children in reaching new heights.

veggiesCoordinator for the free-meal program, Kay Snyder, has shared that the truck will be visiting 2 different sites per day. These meals are available to children between the ages of 1 through 18. The beautiful part about this summer offering is that there will not be a requirement for the recipient to prove financial need, income or proof of ID.

Food options and meals will include wraps, serving of vegetables, fruit and milk. Local products and produce will be used on the truck whenever possible.

The assistant director of the Columbus Parks and Recreation Department, Terri Leist, has said that this meal truck is intended to supplement the 275 meal sites offered throughout the County of Franklin. This includes, but not limited to: summer schools, centers of recreation and many local nonprofit organizations.

A milestone was hit on June 15th, when the staff members assembled over 25,000 meals. This unbelievable program has a price reaching upwards of 1.8 million; however funding is reimbursed by the Unites States Department of Agriculture. The food truck is helping to reach those who may have not otherwise known about the food program.
