To continue foodservice while a facility renovation is underway, Cal Poly Campus Dining recently opened two food truck “villages” where students can order meals.

These areas contain rotating food trucks from local favorite concepts, as well as a new truck from the dining team dubbed What’s Cookin’ Mobile, which offers ramen, poke and more. Tables with umbrellas are available for nearby seating.

The trucks fill a void in the area of the San Luis Obispo, Calif., campus previously served by the Building 19 eatery, which is being updated with more of a food hall feel and will offer nine dining venues.

“We saw a need and decided to fill it with something fresh, fun and exciting,” Operations Manager Cynthia Stocker said in a statement. 

Cal Poly last year debuted its Vista Grande Dining Complex, a 35,400-square-foot space with seven separate concepts and a grab-and-go market.
