Rolling Lion Food Truck To Offer Free Food April 21

Happy Earth Week, Penn State!

EcoReps is bringing the Rolling Lion food truck to campus to serve up free sustainable dishes from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Friday, April 21.

The truck will be located at the corner of Fraser Street and Pollock Road.

The menu includes a three sisters salad, which is a vegetable medley of corn, squash, and beans, and a mixed berry aqua fresca. The food will be cooked by Freddie Bitsoie, a Navajo chef who was previously the executive chef at the National Museum of the American Indian.

Bitsoie is a nationally acclaimed chef and the author of multiple Native American cuisine cookbooks.

“This food truck event is a great opportunity for students to interact with Chef Freddie and learn about his perspective on Indigenous food systems,” EcoReps Dining Programming Coordinator Octavia Szkutnik said.

Members of Penn State EcoReps serve as sustainability ambassadors across campus. Last month, the group observed Earth Hour on campus to reduce electric consumption. At noon on April 21, it will host Critters by the Creamery to allow community members to meet animals.

Sustainable State College is hosting several other activities to celebrate Earth Week, including an Arbor Day celebration, a watershed cleanup day, and a pollinator and bird garden tour.
