Food trucks will become a weekly staple on the University of Kansas’ Lawrence campus in April.

As part of a workplace satisfaction initiative, KU will host four food trucks on campus from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. each Wednesday throughout the month of April. While the food trucks are part of a plan to improve employee morale, the food trucks will be open for business to students and visitors, as well.

Food trucks that are scheduled to participate in the program are 2Hot2Handle, which serves Kansas City-style barbecue; Bryce’s Food Truck, which serves breaded chicken and barbecue; M&D’s Family Recipes, which serves Mexican dishes; and Tina’s Truck, which serves hamburgers and other sandwiches.

The food trucks won’t all be in one location, but rather will rotate between four set locations. Look for trucks at:

• the northeast end of the parking lot in front of Ambler Student Recreation Center, 1740 Watkins Center Drive;

• the circle drive north of Green Hall, 1535 W. 15th St.;

• in front of the Jayhawk Welcome Center, 1266 Oread Ave.;

• the parking lot behind Bailey Hall, 1440 Jayhawk Blvd.

A KU website — humanresources.ku.edu/FoodTrucks — provides information about where specific trucks will be each week, and also has information about menus.
