History & Future

  • The Intuit food truck program was first introduced in Compton Unified School District (CUSD) located in California in early 2023. By developing and running a food truck as a core component of their CTE program, culinary students build their job skills and engage in career readiness training, effectively preparing them to enter the workforce after graduation. This benefit extends to other CTE pathways as well; students in Accounting & Finance, Agricultural, Automotive, Business and Marketing, and Design programs will all have an important role to play in bringing the food truck to life and supporting its success. Having students learn by doing and engaging in experiential learning opportunities, helps to build student agency, According to the Organization for Economic Co-Operation and Development (OECD) Future of Education and Skills 2030 Report, “the concept of student agency is rooted in the principle that students have the ability to, and the will to, positively influence their own lives and the world around them.” This is integral for educational success, because when “students play an active role in deciding what and how they learn, they tend to show greater motivation to learn…and are also more likely to have ‘learned how to learn’ — an invaluable [and transferable] skill that they can and will use throughout their lives.”

    This is just the beginning. In addition to food truck donations in Compton, CA and Sparks, NV, Intuit has committed to providing food trucks to Dallas Independent School District, San Diego Unified School District, and Los Angeles County Unified School District (two food trucks).
