Feeding hungry art students
This fall, students of Pennsylvania College of Art & Design and others working or visiting nearby businesses will have regularly scheduled food trucks as a new lunch dining option on Tuesdays and Thursdays at PCA&D’s Art Garden at Prince and Chestnut Streets in downtown Lancaster.
Kick Off Event: Friday, August 28, 5 p.m.
The Food Trucks will kick off with a special event on Friday, August 28, 5:00 p.m. in the Art Garden, Prince and Chestnut Street, Lancaster. All six food trucks will be present, offering their regular menus. The party is timed for the end of move-in-day for PCA&D’s Foundation Year students who will be living in Steinman Lofts for the academic year.
The trucks will be serving lunch in the Art Garden on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 11:30 a.m. – 2 p.m., beginning September 1, and their regular schedule will continue throughout the year. September 1 starts Orientation Week for students at PCA&D. The Fall Semester begins September 8.
According to Jessica Edonick, PCA&D’s Dean of Student Services, this endeavor will increase the number of nearby healthy and appealing food options available to PCA&D students, who only have an hour between classes. “We are also thrilled to share this opportunity with the Lancaster community. We’d like everyone to join PCA&D students, faculty and staff for lunch at the Art Garden.”
