Decades before food trucks were cool—1982 to be precise—Pam and George Bissonnette started serving hamburgers, Philly cheesesteaks, strollers, and “eggs all day” from their yellow truck parked along University Row. An era in campus food came to a close with the Bissonnettes' retirement at the close of fall semester. "We're getting old. It's time, it's time," Pam said in October. "We'll miss the kids, they're great.”

And they will be missed in return. You feed a lot of people, you make a lot of friends.
