The Oshkosh Area School District is launching a new food truck that gives students of all abilities the chance to gain work experience, WFRV reported. The truck is described as the first of its kind in the country.

The customized and fully accessible food truck is called Brewing Futures Mobile CAFE (Coaching Ability for Employment). Oshkosh students receiving special education services will operate the “mobile classroom.” Students will receive real-life work experience and local community engagement.

“We know that being employed and having a sense of accountability and responsibility is positively life-changing. This exciting project demonstrates our commitment and investment in connecting our students with special needs to their community, securing jobs, and being gainfully employed,” said Linda Pierron, Oshkosh director of special education, on the district’s website.

The truck will debut this summer at community events and local businesses. The menu will be flexible depending on the event, including beverages and prepacked and prepared food items.
