Food truck focuses on healthcare facilities' satellite buildings without on-site meal options

August 18, 2017

Many employees at outlying buildings at Virginia's Centra Health don't have access to on-site food venues so the nutrition services department sends a food truck to their locations, according to an article on the Food Service Equipment and Supplies website.

The truck travels to outlying facilities for regular foodservice and to support special events. 

The times of operation vary because the truck often brings breakfast as well as lunch, depending on the facility and the time the building's staff works.

The truck is equipped with a fryer, flattop grill, a cook-and-hold oven, a three-compartment sink, a single door reach-in freezer, a single door reach-in refrigerator, a fully operational hood system with fire suppression, a prep table, POS hardware, a hand sink, two rooftop marine-grade air conditioning units and fluorescent lighting.
