Grant funds food truck

Funded by a Camp Fire relief grant to combat hunger, the Butte County Office of Education (BCOE) unveiled its mobile teaching kitchen Tuesday (Feb. 25) in Oroville.

BCOE will use the truck to deliver fresh food throughout local districts to students and families displaced by the fire—and dispatch it to sites of need in the event of future disasters. In addition, the vehicle’s kitchen will serve as “an educational platform in health and nutrition education,” according to a BCOE news release.

The district received $523,000 over five years from the Raley’s grocery store company. With donations from customers and ownership, the Sacramento-based company had previously donated nearly $1 million to Camp Fire relief efforts.
