We are pleased to have a variety of food trucks for TGFS this year! Every participating staff member will get a wristband with a detachable tab to use at any food truck. We will also have wristbands for those with special dietary restrictions and designated food trucks to accommodate those dietary needs including vegetarian; vegan; gluten-free; and gluten-free and vegetarian.
A designated person in your department or unit should assign one person to purchase tickets for their staff. They will ask you for your lunch option and purchase the tickets with the department recharge number via the link below. Staff will have the option of a REG Meal (including regular meals or gluten-free, dessert, and a drink) or a VEG Meal (including one vegetarian, vegan, or vegan/gluten-free meal, dessert, and a drink). Staff are welcome to attend the event without a meal ticket and bring their own lunch.
The Chancellor pays a large portion of each individual ticket and the department pays the remaining meal cost. Departments pay $3.00 per staff meal ticket and $12.00 for student-staff meal tickets. Staff do not pay out-of-pocket for the event.
TGFS Swing Shift and TGFS Graveyard:
We have also added TGFS Night Program for swing shift employees and graveyard shift employees. If you have employees in your department that work either swing shift or graveyard shift, please be sure to place their order for meal tickets as well! More information on the TGFS Night Program.
This year, your meal ticket will be a TGFS wristband with tear-off stubs for your meal and for your dessert. Please be sure not to rip off the stubs before event, as this is how you will be able to receive your free meal. The last day for ticket purchasing will be April 26, 2019 at 5:00pm. We will not be allowing any additional ticket purchases after this date.
In addition to a delicious meal, staff are treated to prize drawings, freebies and other services at the various on and off-campus booths in our Vendor Showcase. Every year there’s special entertainment and fun to be had by all attendees. Best of all, it’s free! Isn’t it great to be UC Davis staff!
