FRESNO, Calif. - There are new dining options for student, staff and faculty at Fresno City College -- with food trucks serving food right on-campus. But, they'll be helping out students with more than their appetite.
Starting this semester, two food trucks will be allowed on-campus Tuesday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. One will be stationed by the library, while the other will be outside of the health sciences building.
This Thursday, Raw Fresno was out by the library. Once their truck opened up for the day, student Frank Fernandez quickly hopped in line. Being vegan, Fernandez said finding on-campus options can be tough.
"Classes are kind of right next to each other, so you don't have a lot of time," he said. "Before, I would have to go to the Loving Hut or drive somewhere in Tower or downtown -- just to get a meal."
Cheryl Sullivan, the college's vice president of administrative services, said the college's goal is to give more on-campus options outside of the cafeteria and other vendors.
Also to give more exposure to the businesses, which they appreciate.
"We love it," said Bravo Bites co-owner Theresa Bravo. "The customers are coming to us, they like seeing something different here."
Raw Fresno owner Naomi Hendrix said, "Just love coming to the campus and feeding these young people. Anybody that wants to fill their brain with good food."
Part of the proceeds from the food trucks will go to the State Center Community College Foundation, which helps fund scholarships and other area community college programming.
"That really is a win-win situation," said Sullivan.
