Cat Mobile

Sixty percent of students enrolled in the Ashland Independent School System qualify for the USDA free/reduced lunch program. While these students can receive a hot breakfast and lunch at school, they often go hungry on the weekends, summers, and holiday breaks. We plan to make food more accessible to these students by converting a district-owned box truck into a mobile food truck, the “CATmobile”. The food truck will provide food to students at low-income housing complexes and emergency shelters. We will also be partnering with Our Lady of Bellefonte Hospital and King’s Daughters Medical Center to provide health screenings, resources, and education on healthy living.
