Food trucks welcome on campus

Collegiate High School student Justin Norman orders lunch from Jefe’s food truck on East Campus.

Food trucks are becoming more common in Corpus Christi, including at Del Mar College. This semester, about four different food trucks have come to campus at least once a week to cater to students and staff.

Rita’s of Corpus Christi, Sno-Ball, The Snack Shack and Jefe’s Mobile Cafe are no strangers to East Campus. They all serve a variety of foods and snacks such as Frito pies, shaved ice, Picadillys, burgers and hot dogs.

According to Sonia Carreon, with Student Leadership and Campus Life, the trucks can be found in the “U” of the Harvin Center facing Baldwin Boulevard.

“As of now there is no set schedule of when the trucks come,” Carreon said. “Right now they just show up and sell normally once a week, not all at once, around the times of 10:30 a.m. and 2 p.m.”

Carreon said the trucks come more often on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The food trucks will not only be on the East Campus, but also the West.

Carreon strongly encourages any students or their family members with a food truck to come on campus as well after turning in a few documents into the Business Office.

Food truck operators need a Texas License Tax ID, Food Handler’s Permit, Food Manager’s Permit, the vehicle’s Liability Insurance Card, and a flier with a menu on it of what the truck will be serving. This will all be submitted to the Business Office to verify all the information is correct and the Student Leadership and Campus Life Department will give you a call.
