Since 2013, our Fork in the Road food truck is a culinary job training program that’s been successfully integrating classroom learning, community involvement, and real-life work experience for teenage students in the Burlington School District.
With a menu of locally-sourced foods such as Vermont tacos and pulled pork sandwiches, students earn summer wages while learning how to prepare food and provide great customer service. The food truck is integrated into academic classes such as business and culinary arts at Burlington High School, and students receive mentoring from the local restaurant community. This amazing program not only teaches relevant skills, teamwork, and workplace professionalism, but also increases confidence — and changes lives.
Fork in the Road grew out of Burlington School Food Project’s hands-on gardening and cooking programs. It’s all possible thanks to our lead sponsor, Dealer.com, who committed resources and expertise to make this project a success.
