Silver Spring Foods donates food trailer to CVTC
EAU CLAIRE – Silver Spring Foods donated a food trailer to Chippewa Valley Technical College recently, and in turn, the college is showing its appreciation by revealing its new mobile food lab and offering a tailgate food event. The tailgate fare will be free of charge with a suggested $5 donation, which will support the CVTC Food Pantry.
The college’s Culinary Management program will use the trailer as a mobile laboratory to teach students about maintaining a high standard of quality, service and cleanliness while working in small spaces. Culinary instructors also said it will be utilized to serve food during special occasions.
“We’re thrilled to receive this donation from Silver Spring Foods,” said Kevin Brown, CVTC Culinary Management instructor. “Food trucks are now a large part of our communities’ culinary experience. Using this mobile lab to bring our curriculum into other communities and to give our students a broader view of the culinary world is exciting.”
A short 15-minute program unveiling the Culinary Management Mobile Food Lab will take place at 11 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 10, with lab tours to follow.
