Have you heard? Camosun College has added something new to its ‘Culinary Arts Professional Cook’ program: its first post-secondary student-run food truck went live this summer! As far as we are aware, it’s only the third food truck operated by a college culinary arts program in all of Canada. It’s literally the perfect teaching vehicle (pun absolutely intended!) for our culinary students and a great way to generate keen interest on both Camosun campuses from a variety of departments and subject areas.
Operating a food truck is an obvious learning platform for training professional cooks. Yet, we discovered the food truck is also providing a showcase for a diversity of programs across the college.
