WFISD food truck features local farmers

WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) -

Many got a taste of the food prepared by Wichita Falls Independent School District Chefs.

Marci Spruiell, the Marketing Specialist for Chartwells K12, a food service management company, said Saturday was the first time the new WFISD food truck was used in public.

"This is just a great way for us to be able to say come and try the food," Spruiell said.

 The district's Child Nutrition Office teamed up with the local farmers market to hold a Farm to School Fair. People were able to stop by and sample some of the food that is served on the campuses.Like jalapeno cheeseburgers, chili roasted potatoes, roasted pecans and grilled vegetables.

Farai Sithole, the Resident District Manager for Chartwells K12, said in celebration of Farm to School Month they were featuring two local farmers.

"Morath Orchard as well as Young's Orchard, so they gave us some of the local produce and we are actually featuring some of those items in the food truck," Sithole said. "Those are the same items you actually see in our cafes in the schools."

Olivia Solis said she really liked the chili roasted potatoes and the grilled vegetables.

"Oh yeah it was really good," Solis said. "When I was in school I would have rather had what is happening right now." 

The Chartwells K12 Marketing Specialist said the WFISD food truck will be serving food at Burgess Elementary on October 26 for their Halloween fair.
