ATHENS, Ala. (WHNT) - Hands-on training for Limestone County high schools reaches a new level, and their most recent project will go to good use.

The collision and repair class at Limestone County Career Technical Center wrapped a full sized school bus.

"It's amazing because its one of the biggest and newest things out in doing cars, NASCARs are vinyl-wrapped, so it a big opportunity to be able to do this," said student Drew Ellison.

The best part is what the bus will be used for.

It's called Chow Express and will serve free breakfast and lunch to kids countywide all summer.

"They are going to go to vacation bible schools, some of the churches, athletic areas where they're practicing football, they're going to pull up there and feed all the kids," explained teacher Mike Raney.

All Limestone County kids under 18 will be able to receive a free meal from the bright lime green bus with the custom, student-created design.

"It's pretty awesome to see it on a computer screen and then actually seeing it put on the bus and knowing it's going to a good cause," said student Matt McNatt.

The bus is set to start rolling, and serving free meals, on June 1.
