Poudre High School fundraising for a food truck

· Apr. 15, 2015, 5:50 pm

Poudre High School is trying to raise $35,000 in one month so that they can start their own food truck, reports the Coloradoan.

No, not so they can avoid cafeteria food: It's part of a popular catering curriculum in the district that has grown from four classes in 2008 to 19 planned classes for next year. 

Poudre High School's catering teacher, Cathy Toplyn, told the paper that the food truck is another way for the school's food curriculum to stay relevant:

"It's not cooking and sewing anymore," she said. "It's business and entrepreneurship."

At the time of this writing, the campaign has raised less than $1,000.
