The Mobile Learning Cafe Bus Rolls Out July 18, 2016

A few years ago, several QISD staff members saw the need for nutritional and academic support for our students and their families during long school breaks.  QISD spans 152 square miles, serves four municipalities and portions of four counties.  We knew that we needed to find a way to be able to take nutritional and academic support to the students who needed it most, in their own neighborhoods.  The dream of refurbishing a retired school bus equipped to provide hot meals, books, and learning activities was born.  The dream is now a reality through a partnership between QISD, United Way of Hunt County, and the ACE Program.  The Mobile Learning CafĂ© is decorated like a 50s style cafe down to the booths, chairs, and countertops.  It is equipped with bookshelves, instructional technology and the ability to carry and serve hot meals.  

The 2016 Summer Food for Thought Program will run Monday-Thursdays, from July 18th-August 18th, 2016.
