Job Corps food truck serves Colorado firefighters
The Boxelder Job Corps Mobile Kitchen, a 53-foot semi trailer with a kitchen, recently served firefighters in Colorado who were fighting a fire, according to 9news.com.
The trailer is run by the USDA Forest Service Jobs Corps culinary arts program. The program instructor is the head chef, and is staffed with full-time cooks, as well as Job Corps students who learn a skill while earning money.
The crew has a support truck to haul equipment and provide mobile power to the kitchen and tents. The mobile kitchen also travels with tables and chairs to furnish a dining area.
During the Colorado firefight, the trailer provided approximately 1,500 hours of support from five different chefs, 24 support cooks and 24 students. The trailer spent 35 days at a staging area and served more than 20,000 meals.
