No matter where you are on campus, you’re probably only a few strides away from a delicious meal. That is thanks in large part to mobile food vendors—the dozens of trucks and carts that have a rich history at Temple.

While you might know the fastest route to your favorite food truck by heart, a new, interactive (and smartphone friendly) map plots out all of the mobile food vendors on campus and offers a brief description of what each has to offer.

This map also accounts for a few location changes, effective for the 2016–2017 academic year, made under Temple’s Street and Sidewalk Vending District. For example, food carts have been relocated to 13th Street and Montgomery Avenue across from the Howard Gittis Student Center, as well as 13th and Norris streets.

The vending district, implemented in collaboration with the Philadelphia Department of Licenses and Inspections, helps ensure safe operations among mobile food vendors on Main Campus and sets forth uniform standards for parking, power connections, trash removal and other requirements. The vending district allows for a total of 50 vendors, which maintains the quantity and types of mobile food vendors on campus.
