Trillium to launch inclusive food trucks with Easterseals

Loading…

Monday, May 6, 2019

Trillium Health Resources, in partnership with Easterseals UCP, announces the launch of two food trucks.

Located in New Bern and Ahoskie, the trucks will employ individuals with intellectual/developmental disabilities and offer inclusive work environments.

After promoting a contest on social media to collect name suggestions, Trillium and Easterseals UCP shared the winning submission: SensABLE Snacks. The name highlights the food trucks’ mission to emphasize that anyone who is willing to work should be able to have the opportunity.

Trillium has been addressing healthy opportunities in local communities for years. Social determinants of health are factors beyond the physical aspects that contribute to overall wellness.

Food security and employment are two key factors of social determinants of health. Nutrition is a basic, physiological need.

Food insecurity makes it difficult to achieve any other goals. Regular employment, whether full- or part-time, helps supply income, provides a sense of purpose, and improves self-esteem.

Easterseals UCP is a leading provider of disability and mental health related services in North Carolina and Virginia. It provides services so that children and adults living with disabilities and mental health challenges can live, learn, work and play in their communities.

Easterseals UCP will process all applications and handle staffing for the trucks; interested individuals may contact Laurie Nederveen, project manager, at 919-616-4976 or laurie.nederveen@eastersealsucp.com.

The SensABLE Snacks trucks will serve prepackaged food items, whole fruit, and bottled or canned beverages. No food will be prepared onsite. Hiring will take place during the spring and expected launch date for the trucks will be later this summer.
