Visit a Food Truck, Help Frites 'n' Meats' Explosion Recovery

New, 11 comments

On Monday, a major propane tank explosion sent two workers at the Frites 'n' Meats food truck to the hospital and completely destroyed the truck. While some worry about the safety of food trucks, aka roving fireballs, in general, the food truck community is banding together to help out one of their own. All day today, members of the NYC Food Truck Association—which includes the Kimchi Taco Truck, Mexicue NY, the Kelvin Truck, Taim Mobile, and the Mud Truck—will give a portion of their sales to help the owners of the downed truck get back on their feet. Donations will also be made (Paypal link here) in the name of the Food Truck Association to NYC Fire Dept and NYPD Precinct in thanks for their response to the emergency.
