Del Mar students are both campuses may soon have more choices when it comes to food, one that involves everybody’s favorite vehicle: food trucks.

During the last Student Government Association meeting of the semester on Nov. 15, Parliamentarian Marjorie Bryant-Sparrow discussed the motion to test out food trucks for students during finals week.

The purpose for the food trucks, according to Bryant-Sparrow, is to provide students with options. The group hopes to prioritize efforts on West Campus, where students are surrounded by the usual Subway, Burger King and other fast-food options, but few within walking distance.

This way, students who are looking beyond snack food have more choices for meals with a truck open from 6:30 a.m. to the end of testing all week during finals week, where everyone is running out of time and forgets to do kind of important things … like eating.

As far as the East Campus, a focus is placed more on lunch and dinner foods with several breakfast options already located around Baldwin and Ayers. The truck on East Campus will be set up at 11:30 a.m. during finals week, Bryant-Sparrow said.

The motion was unanimously carried to move forward with the food trucks as a trial run during finals; if the food trucks are successful, the SGA plans to incorporate them to campuses regularly.

The Student Government Association also discussed matters such as club volunteering hours. President John Beauford made a motion to include one hour of student volunteering each week, by each officer.

According to association adviser Beverly Cage, this could be a chance for students to “individually be more active members.”

Also discussed was the motion to include club apparel, which means button-up shirts for the SGA to wear to their retreats as well as T-shirts to wear casually, and to give one to all students on campus who request it.
