Uncle Ben’s Food Truck Serves Lunch to Franklin Students

Posted by Community Relations on 12/2/2015

Lunch was a little different at Franklin, December 3. The Uncle Ben’s Food Truck came to town to serve lunch to students. It is one of 50 stops in 20 states. The truck sampled whole grain foodservice recipes that meet USDA school nutrition standards. At select high schools, students had the ability to not only taste the recipes, but also vote on which recipe should be added to the school’s menu. The Uncle Ben’s Food Truck aims to show kids that cafeteria meals can be delicious, as well as nutritious.
