Tapingo Expands to Pacific's E.A.T. Food Truck

by Patrick GiblinJan 8, 2013

Students, faculty and staff on south campus (Stockton) will now have an easier time ordering food from the E.A.T. truck that is parked on weekdays by the Psychology/Communication building. Starting Wednesday, Jan. 9, breakfast and lunch orders can be placed in advance using the Tapingo food-ordering app.

Tapingo was initially launched on campus Oct. 1.

The smart phone app allows users to order food in advance, schedule when it will be picked up, and pay for it with money in their meal plan or PacificCashTM account. There are ground rules. If the food is ordered but not picked up, the account will still be charged. To get the food, students and employees have to show the electronic receipt that they will receive from Tapingo.

Tapingo initially was launched for The Lair in the Don and Karen DeRosa University Center, but due to the popularity of the phone-based program, the app was expanded at the end of October to allow drinks from the Calaveras Coffee House in the DeRosa Center.

The app is free for download from iTunes for iPhones or from the Android Play Market for Android phones. For information on Tapingo, visit http://www.tapingo.com/
