Aggie Eats

The Aggie Eats food truck is a program designed to increase student access to delicious, nutritious, healthy food and other basic needs resources. Stop by the truck, grab a meal and pay nothing or pay a few bucks or even pay a few extra! No one knows what you paid, and any money that comes in goes right back into more meals for students.

Food Truck Updates!

The food truck will be closed over the summer. The truck will return Wednesday, September 25th, 2024.

At Aggie Compass we believe that food is love … and love is a basic need. As someone who grew up dealing with food insecurity, I understand the importance of having access to healthy, nutritious food and the huge impact it can make in your life. With this in mind, we hope AggieEats can help, so students can focus on bigger things and not have to worry about having their basic needs met. Our food is made with love and served with love, and we hope that it feeds your heart as much as your bellies."

About AggieEats

AggieEats is an innovative food truck concept to address food insecurity for students at UC Davis. According to the UC Undergraduate Experience Survey, 42% of UC Davis students have experienced times of low to very low food security. We know that food insecurity is fluid and can be impacted by unexpected circumstances, which means students’ needs may fluctuate throughout their time on campus. Through a partnership with the Aggie Compass Basic Needs Center and Student Dining Services and donor support, the food truck is able to provide freshly prepared food for up to 500 students at no to low cost.

How It Works 

The pay-what-you-want pricing structure allows students to select any amount that they would like to pay, including $0, to ensure that students experiencing food insecurity have options to access healthy, nutritious food. Students can access the ordering system once they arrive at the truck. Advanced ordering is not permitted.

Students order and select the amount to pay on their smartphones so menu selections and payment amount are confidential. Students without smartphones may order at the window.
