“UD students are always asking us why we aren’t on main campus,” said Melinda Litvinas, creamery manager.  “Our store is located on south campus because it is essential to the teaching and research programs of the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources, but an ice cream truck would allow us to bring some of south campus to other areas of campus. In addition, we would be able to take the ice cream truck to UD campuses in southern Delaware.”
