The Food Truck Challenge drove into to Gelinas Junior High School once again for the spring semester. Eighth grade students in Ms. Pomponio’s family and consumer science classes created their own food truck businesses. They researched local competition, and created business plans, menus and creative designs for their trucks. Once the projects were complete, the food trucks went on display in the Gelinas library where students and staff could vote in various categories.

Congratulations to the winners of this year’s challenge:

Best Food Truck Design: Howzit Smoothie and Acai by Sophie Barresi and Abby Mathiesen

Best Overall Theme: La Petite Boulangerie by Sonya Chou, Jenna Lang and Gianna Morelli

Best Menu: Meaty Munchers by Bryce Baranowski, Billy De Geronimo and Sunneo Wang
