Name that truck

The School of Human Sciences is acquiring a mobile food laboratory, and we would like your input regarding a name for this new asset. This one-of-a-kind truck will be utilized at special events on campus and across East Texas and for recruitment at career and college fairs. It will allow SFA students to experience active learning in a realistic setting and will encourage them as entrepreneurs in creating and executing a business plan.

So, put on your thinking caps and use your creativity to suggest a name you think will best represent SFA, the James I. Perkins College of Education, and students in the hospitality administration program and the food, nutrition and dietetics program. The theme and menu of the mobile food lab will change frequently, so be sure to suggest a name that is all-encompassing of great food.
