BUFFALO, NY – Institutions on the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus are looking to eventually create their own version of a massive food truck experience to diversify eating options for campus workers and the public – mirroring the widely successful Food Truck Tuesdays in Larkinville.
That may not happen for a long time – given the ongoing construction on campus – but there’s a strong push behind the scenes to ramp up the daily presence of food trucks throughout the 120-acre campus beyond the handful of trucks there on a typical day.
Kaleida Health – which operates Buffalo General Medical Center, the new John R. Oishei Children’s Hospital that will open in November and Gates Vascular Institute – is working with Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus Inc. to expand food truck options, said Kaleida Health spokesman Michael P. Hughes.
One of the things being looked at for this summer season is creating multiple-day visits for food trucks in more centrally located sections of campus that would not conflict with ongoing construction, Hughes said Tuesday. “We have talked to a number of food truck vendors for their availability this summer.”
