San Diego food truck is cooking with lessons on how to run a business

San Diego is gaining another food truck.

This one will soon be run by high school students, combining cooking with lessons in how to run a business.

Tuesday, the San Diego Unified School District unveiled its state-of-the-art food truck paid for in a partnership with Intuit.

The kitchen on wheels will provide work-based learning for culinary students at Mira Mesa, Hoover, San Diego, Garfield, and Morse high schools.

Oh, I’m very excited,” said Taiga Pangelinan, 17, a senior at Morse High School with a father who is a Pacific Islander and a mother who is Japanese.

“My family loves to cook with Spam, and I love to cook it. On my mom’s side, if I get the chance, I like to make ramen,” he said.
