Support Local Food Trucks

Due to the COVID-19 public health emergency, the Food Bank's annual Truck Stop fundraiser - scheduled for Friday, May 29 - has been cancelled for this year. But we hope you'll still support the food trucks that were committed to this event.

Visit our website for truck information so you can find their locations and enjoy some delicious food while helping these great local businesses.

A special thanks to our Truck Stop sponsors, including Street Eats Festival Sponsor Stop & Shop, for honoring their commitment to support the Food Bank.
