Under the guidance of Chef Lee Shinsato, students from KCC’s Culinary program will be running a lunch truck on campus Mondays through Thursdays from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. near the Kopiko building in parking lot A.
“The intent was to provide another venue for the students to get lunch,” said John Mizokawa, operations manager for the Culinary department.
While KCC’s Culinary department will run the lunch truck, it won’t be serving the same menu that will be available at Ohiʻa Cafeteria.
With the food truck being sponsored by both Walmart and Kaiser Permanente as part of a health initiative, light food options such as grilled lean meats, fish, wraps and salads will make-up the entire menu. The lunch truck is also meant to be self-sustaining, so the culinary program is responsible for all means of production, including staffing the truck.
