A tradition since 2002, teams of students from the Cyvia and Melvyn Wolff Center for Entrepreneurship raise money for scholarships and student activities by running pop-up food stands in a three-day competition.

Part of the Wolff Center’s capstone course, it is the largest and most complex project that students do in the program, and currently raises more than $250,000 per year in food sales and donations.
