To get ideas on what the new pop-up will be, he and his team surveyed students and found a lot of them requested for healthier options.So, salads and wraps were the options Flores turned to, he said.Once Flores got the name, he began to create the menu.Photo Caption: Union Grounds publicizes the new pop-up restaurant, Give ‘Em Kale.Photo Credit: Katie AdamsKale, a trendy food, is an option that many students are attracted to. It is a considered a superfood that can be paired with many different options in order to create a healthy option for students.“I believe students will find them light, tasty and different than a salad or wrap they might get elsewhere on campus,” said Craig Allen, director of housing and residence life. Sophomore nutrition major, Jessica Mertes, said she is a fan of the new option.“I tried Give ‘Em Kale last week and have been, I think, five times since,” Mertes said. She explains her favorite combination is the quinoa wrap with black beans and that she is so happy TCU decided to change the pop-up from grilled cheese to something healthier for all students.
