The Nutrition Express and Cruisin’ Café is a former activity bus that has been completely renovated to include food warmers, coolers, and a hand sink. In addition, the bus has been outfitted with a generator and technology to allow for multimedia presentations on board. Colorful fruit and vegetable graphics wrap the inside and outside of the bus and padded bench seats invite you to stay a while.
The Nutrition Express and Cruisin’ Café bus serves dual purposes of nutrition education (Nutrition Express) during the school year and meal service (Cruisin’ Cafe) during school breaks. It is the first of its kind in Virginia and we hope it will help to expand the reach of our program and our visibility in the community.
