LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Lafayette School Corporation is looking into new and creative ways to feed students. Administrators think they have found the answer in a food truck.

It's a fun way for students to get food during the school day and it also guarantees what they are eating meets nutrition requirements.

The school corporation hopes the truck will encourage more kids to eat at school. Administrators said students will have five menu options to choose from.

The Food Truck is provided through a partnership with Chartwells, the company that provides food services to LSC.

Chief Financial officer of LSC, Eric Rody said the truck still needs some work before it's ready to use.

"The simple things of a vehicle, a license plate on it, get it registered, get it insured it's a kitchen and it cooks so it has to be inspected by the health department," said Eric Rody. 

The plan is to start the truck out at Lafayette Jefferson High School and Tecumseh Junior High School. 

The district hopes to roll it out officially in a few weeks.
