  • Food Trucks on Campus at Lunchtime Aug. 3-7 and Aug. 10-13

    Posted: Friday, July 31 With dining facilities at Brown Hall closing to prepare for the opening of the fall semester, lunches will be available from two local food trucks in front of Brown Hall.

    The mobile chefs have provided these descriptions of their cuisine:

    Ceci’s Culinary Tour:  Cecilia’s Kitchen menu features our homemade authentic gluten free crêpes, empanadas, tamales, soups, salads, and daily specials. We understand the importance of healthy eating, affordable pricing, and supporting our local economy buying locally grown organic ingredients whenever possible. That’s why we cook with organic products like beef, chicken, pork, flour, eggs, and seasonal vegetables. As a result, our cuisine is fresh and mouthwatering!

    The Real Food Truck: At The Real Food Truck, you'll find nothing but real ingredients. Our divinely delicious culinary creations are crafted with nutrient-dense, sustainably grown, local, whole foods. We're giving traditional foods - like grass-fed beef, bone-broth, butter and fermented veggies - a modern twist.  Come taste a little piece of paradise.

    Some days, both trucks will be parked in front of Brown Hall; other days only one truck will be there, during these hours: 10:30 a.m.-2 p.m. on August 3-7, and   August 10-13th.

    The Lifestyle Dining Hall in Brown Hall will reopen for the fall semester on Friday, August 14.
