Trustees approved the purchase of a food truck for $147,004.95 at their Nov. 13 meeting using general fund money.
The food truck will serve all five high schools in LISD, visiting one high school a day through a rotational calendar. It will also be used at special district events.
During the summer the food truck will be utilized for summer food service programs in areas where students are in need of meals but are not in close proximity to a summer food service location.
Any school-aged child will be able to purchase food from the truck.
Superintendent Kevin Rogers said the district will map out the areas where the district has the most free and reduced lunch students and send the truck there during the summer. He added he expects the truck can serve at least two locations a day.
