Students, staff, and other campusgoers will be able to enjoy more lunch options from June 18 onwards, when a food truck will begin offering meals on Ookayama Campus.
The truck will initially operate every Tuesday on the northwest side of the Main Building, where professional chefs will serve a variety of dishes. Provided that the trial period goes smoothly, visits from the mini-kitchens will increase in frequency after the summer break, as will the number of chefs serving the food.
Tokyo Tech initiated this change in response to one of the items in the last Student Survey — a request for more lunch options to alleviate queues in campus cafeterias. The meals on wheels will be provided by TLUNCH, a company specializing in food truck services around the Tokyo area. Customers can check the weekly menu using the company app, which will also enable cashless payments in the near future.
Depending on the number of meals sold, TLUNCH will consider whether it will expand its operations to other areas on Tokyo Tech's campuses.
