At noon, Feb. 22 — that’s this Wednesday — SJSU will introduce a new food concept that will allow Spartans to get a little variety in their lunch selection.

Spartan Shops’ first Street Eats event will feature Vietnamese sandwiches, including beef, chicken, and tofu options.

For this trial run, the food will be free-of-charge and given out on a first-come-first-serve basis while supplies last. The location of the event will be leaked Wednesday morning via the Street Eats Twitter page.

“We’re really excited about this fun, new concept. It will provide students with a variety of food options that they otherwise would not be able to find on campus,” said Stephanie Shih Fabian, Spartan Shops marketing manager.

This event is part of a larger effort from Spartan Shops to bring cutting-edge cuisine that can be found around San Jose right to the hungry students on campus. Students will be able to purchase food from tents in locations that will vary weekly. Food options will include anything and everything from Korean barbecue tacos to sandwiches, burritos, and much more.

Be sure to follow along the Street Eats Twitter page for the latest on upcoming dates and locations.
