RIVERSIDE, Calif. – Gourmet food fans at the University of California, Riverside will have the chance to sample a wide variety of mobile cuisines as the campus hosts the inaugural UCR Food Truck Festival on Wednesday, May 15, 2013 from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. around the Highlander Union Building.

The festival is co-sponsored by UCR Housing, Dining and Residential Services and ASUCR. Though primarily for the UCR campus community, the public is welcome to attend as well.

UCR Culinary Chameleon

UCR’s Culinary Chameleon will be featured at the inaugural UCR Food Truck Festival on May 15.

As many as a dozen food trucks are expected at the festival, including UCR’s own Culinary Chameleon, the Goodwin’s Organic Truck, The Viking Truck, the Rolling Sushi Van, Meat the Greek, and the Chomp Chomp nation truck.

“We are excited to see and taste all the food on these trucks,” said Michael Neener, general manager of the A&I Residential Restaurants and the Culinary Chameleon. “UCR’s first annual food truck festival should be a true unique experience for our students.  We encourage everyone to stop by and experience the many options out there, but don’t forget to stop by the Chameleon for some tasty Mexican food!”

The trucks will be accepting cash, but will not accept Bear Bucks or Dining Dollars. In addition, the HUB Foodcourt Restaurants, except Panda Express, will be closed during the festival. Also, a percentage of the truck’s sales will go to support student events.
