Food trucks have been an alternative option to the Dockside Café for the past two years, however, plans for trucks at Whatcom Community College this year are still in the works.
According to Mike Ryan, Head of Dining Services at Whatcom, the school has been bringing in trucks since 2017, and much organization and effort goes into maintaining a solid business relationship with the trucks.

Whatcom Community College closed the proposal window for a new contract with on-campus food services on Friday, May 5.
Whatcom Community College put out a Request for Proposals (RFP) on April 10, 2017. A RFP is used in instances in which a need for a service is established, and a clear outline of management is needed.
The RFP allows consultants from each bidder to submit ideas that will benefit the dining areas.
