Georgia Southern University’s Eagle Dining services will launch the long-awaited food truck on Saturday.

The food truck is part of the same mobile dining initiative that has been in development throughout Eagle Dining Services since last fall, Michael Murphy director of auxiliary marketing, said.

The truck will start with a soft run during the Erk Russell Classic football game on Saturday and then will relaunch for future game-day operations. The main setup for the truck will be near the stadium bus stop.

Chikamso Achu, senior engineering major, said he hopes the truck will offer different food options compared to the stadium.

“The stadium food is really expensive,” Achu said. “They should have cheaper options.”

John Lantis, freshman mechanical engineering major, said he’s excited for the truck.

“It’s a good idea,” Lantis said. “I will definitely go buy something.”

The truck’s menu will consist of breakfast items, grab-and-go sandwiches and salads and a variety of game-day favorites such as hot dogs, chicken fingers, pizza, BBQ and more.
