Lunchies 2019: Five under $5

Here’s what you can grab around Main Campus without breaking the bank.

Temple is lined with food trucks all around campus, and they bring different things to the table. These trucks offer everything from a savory vegan burger to a sweet mango and kale smoothie. Still, eating out can be expensive, and not every student is able to afford an $11 salad, so The Temple News compiled a list of five different hearty foods, all for $5 or less.
