University works to make ‘Food Truck Fridays’ a reality

There will soon be a new way to enjoy your favorite food on campus. Next semester you can look forward to “Food Truck Fridays.”

“I decided wow, what’s a good way for us to have some more options on campus?,” said sophomore student senator Elizabeth Larson.

Larson decided to bring the idea to campus to give students more food options. She said it will benefit students by bringing more vegetables to campus, more diversity and variety. She said it will also give everyone another reason to love Fridays.

“I think the most exciting part is seeing all the food trucks that are interested in coming to Baylor,” Larson said.

Administrators are currently working with various food trucks around Waco. Some of the possible options include Pokey O’s, Viteks, Torchy’s Tacos, and Steel City Pops.

“We also want to introduce food options you don’t typically get on campus. Our hope is to be able to engage in our ethnic food options here in our community as well as some of the staples of our student experience,” said director of student activities Matt Burchett.

While the exact location hasn’t been decided yet, one of the spots under serious consideration is in front of the Bill Daniel Student Center (SUB). The idea is to have the food trucks lined up along Fifth Street.

“So friends, you should definitely come out on Fridays and get some great food. I look forward to it next semester,” Larson said.
