Duke to cut weekend service and add food trucks during weekday lunch hours

University tried expanded weekend dining hall service but didn't get enough volume to justify time addition.

Oct. 10— When students return from Fall Break, changes to Duke Dining will take effect.

Penn Pavilion will be cutting most of its weekend service, but there will be additional food trucks in Telecom Circle—the cul-de-sac between Perkins Library and the Fitzpatrick Center—during weekday lunch hours.

“The Great Hall was not open for weekends for the last several years, however, we decided to try and pilot expanded hours from the Great Hall to include weekends, but the Pavilion has been way under utilized from Friday dinner through Sunday brunch,” Robert Coffey, director of dining services wrote in an email Tuesday.
