Don’t miss it — National Food Truck Day is coming this Friday, June 28, and food truck roundups are going to appear all across the valley as participating trucks offer specials to hungry guests. Do you enjoy good cooking hot from the loving pots and pans of small business owners? If so, take notes. Many local food trucks are going to offer celebratory deals. While students may eat at our campus food trucks often, there are many more trucks in Utah — over 300 to be exact.
