DOVER, Del. (AP) - A Delaware school district is using a food truck to help make sure students have enough to eat on days they aren’t in class.

The News Journal reports (http://delonline.us/2iAizeA ) the Capital School District’s truck will hit the street for the first time on Monday. In a trial run that’s intended to gauge interest, the truck will make stops at two housing developments, offering a soup and sandwich meal.

Students will be out of school Monday for the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday.

District officials hope the truck will help fill a gap left by the Food Bank of Delaware cutting its free lunch programs in the Dover area.

James Trower, supervisor of child nutrition for the district, says it’s a way to “reach out to the kids who can’t come to us.”
