Pflugerville Academic Center of Excellence (PACE) students on Monday, Oct. 24 served up dinner to Pflugerville Education Foundation board members at the PfISD Administration Building.
The meal was made in a new mobile kitchen provided through a Pflugerville Community Development Corporation/Pflugerville Education Foundation grant worth $50,000.

“This helps the students at PACE learn a new trade,” said PEF Executive Director Allison Kane. “The Foundation’s goal is to help all students in PfISD reach their potential. This type of grant is exactly what we want.”
The mobile kitchen allows PACE students to receive culinary classroom instruction, with a goal of utilizing it at three to four events throughout the school year.  

Aramark funded food handler and food manager courses for students and PACE Principal Mike Harvey, while Snappy Snacks Mobile Catering owner Tom Ramsey allowed students to use the business’ facilities for Monday’s event.

Students cooked fried chicken pieces with pan-fried potatoes and corn Monday.
