Bloom Food Truck (or Net Appetit) back on Stanford Campus for Now

Bloom Food Truck, formerly known as Net Appetit, is back on Stanford campus, albeit by some very tight restrictions.  I’m a little confused by the new restrictions imposed on Bloom, which were imposed by Stanford University and not Off The Grid, but it definitely handicaps Bloom’s ability to operate on campus.  It sounds like Bloom is no longer able to accept orders on campus from walk-in customers, and to those who are not familiar with this truck, it is basically a buffet set-up where you walk in to the truck from the side, pick what you want, and then pay outside based on the weight of your order.   Currently, it sounds like Bloom can operate only by taking orders before hand by phone or email, preparing the orders off campus, and then making delivery on campus.  This definitely defeats the purpose of a food truck and is a major handcuff for Bloom.  You can read more about from this article from the Stanford Daily.  Apparently, the Stanford student body has already reached out to Stanford about conceding some type of exception for Bloom and other food trucks that have been in business on campus prior to the recent contract with Off The Grid, and have already made a petition in hopes of achieving this.  Hopefully Bloom and other food trucks that have been asked to leave will be allowed to operate again on campus in unity with the new trucks in contract with Off The Grid, especially since Bloom donates part of it profits to charitable organizations (to read more about Bloom click here).
