Virginia Tech brings food trucks to campus

Andrew Hudson   ||   Aug 12, 2016  ||   

Virginia Tech is bringing two new food trucks to campus to offer students another meal option, as well as provide food service to underserved or remote areas of campus.

According to the university, the Grillfield, made its debut at the Southgate area of campus this week, with campus employees being the first to test out the lunch offerings from the truck's new menu. The maiden luncheon was put on as a 'thank you' to employees of  the university's Fleet Services who worked during the summer months to get the food truck up and running in time for the start of the fall semester.


In addition to the food trucks, Virginia Tech maintains six dining halls, cafes and kiosks, but the new the food trucks will rotate locations to underserved areas, bringing additional dining options to students who can't make it to the brick-and-mortar dining locations.

Both trucks will feature what the university calls "compact menus," and will serve street food inspired by various cultures from around the world. The university gave students an opportunity to sample the food trucks' offerings as part of a trial and feedback period last year.

The university will add its second food truck soon, also in time for the fall semester, in the form of the Periodic Table.



Meal plans, cash and cards will all be accepted at the food trucks, with prices for items ranging from $5 to $8 before adding meal plan discounts. The addition of the new food trucks has thus far been met with positive feedback, gaining attention from both the Virginia Tech community and beyond.
