KSU Dining’s latest innovation is the Fork in the Road food truck, which offers a selection of portable items like the signature Chef Christian's Summit St. Burger, along with a veggie wrap with garlic aioli and the Chef Zou's baklava. Also notable is the Veggie-A-GO-GO call ahead vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free program that provides meatless and gluten-free options with phone call, a late-night delivery service to anywhere on campus off the pizza/calzone/salad/sub/wings menu at Rosie’s Diner & Market.
