Celebrating the CATEC Culinary Team!

During the Fall Harvest Festival this year, we were so lucky to partner up with the CATEC Culinary Arts team with their Food Truck converted School Bus.

This Food Bus was established from a grant that CATEC received in the 2017/18 school year. With the grant funds, they received a decommissioned old school bus, and with the help of many trades in the school (Building Trades, Electrical. Auto body, Automotive teams) they put together the Food Bus which is named “Technical Eats”. The Food Bus makes special appearances at selected events, like our Fall Harvest Festival and also is located at Whole Foods once a month where they serve delicious meals.  Students build not only their culinary skills but also their entrepreneurial skills including menu development, and promotion. The truck has brought the community Paninis, smoothies, salads, wraps and soups with all products and food donated from Whole Foods.

While at the Harvest Festival, they had a “Berry Cherry Smoothie,” and a delicious Fire-Roasted Tomato Bisque with a grilled cheese crouton.  CATEC graciously donated all of the food that came off of the bus that day.
