The Food Truck Project

Don’t ask us why healthy food is so expensive, ask why junk food is so cheap.

We are building this food truck because there aren’t enough people around the community that are eating healthy. The main cause for people to eat unhealthy is because fruits and vegetables cost much more money than a bag of chips at the market.  

We are making this food truck to give people a chance to eat healthy at the same price as it costs to eat unhealthy,

to sell healthy foods for low prices.

Not only are we doing this project for a grade, we also doing this project as something new.  

We want to show West Philadelphia that we might be a little school, but we are making changes and doing big things in our community.  

If we build a food truck it will give people the opportunity to have a healthy meal and get the energy that need to get them through the day. Most people don’t have the money to buy healthy food because it’s so expensive.  With our food truck we want to have affordable prices for our foods.

Some things we will teach our customers

is how the body is set up and which order your organs go into. We will also talk about the

things that can happen if your body doesn’t get all the nutrients needed.  

We want to improve access to healthy, affordable, cooked foods in low-income neighborhoods.

This year we are launching for a food truck that will serve on-the-go meals made with ingredients sourced from local farms.

No junk in our truck!

Launching a business may be our eventual goal but our first step will be to develop a mobile food educational vehicle. We have split up into five groups with different final goals and check-ins along the way.
