12 Trucks Giving Away Food in Hard-Hit Areas Today

New, 3 comments

Hey, GREAT NEWS: Parts of Lower Manhattan might get power sometime today, but even if that happens, it'll be a little while before restaurants (and grocery stores) are up-and-running. To help out the hungry, stir-crazy people in parts of the city that are still without power, the NYC Food Truck Association and JetBlue are sending an armada of food trucks today to give away free food. The trucks will head to different parts of blacked-out Manhattan?as well as the hard-hit Rockaways?between noon and 4 p.m. today.

All told, 12 different trucks will spread out to give away food at seven different sites today. Participating trucks include Wafels & Dinges, which is sending out several, Coolhaus, Milk Truck, Toum, and more. Here's the list of trucks and where they'll be parked:

At Eighth Avenue and 19th Street in Chelsea:
· Andy's Italian Ice
· Milk Truck
· Frites n' Meats

At Washington Square:
· Big D's Grub
· Coolhaus

At Beach 50th and Beach Channel Drive in the Rockaways:
· Cupcake Crew
· Eddie's Pizza

At Astor Place:
· Toum

At Tompkins Square Park:
· Mexico Blvd.
· Sweetery

At Trader Joe's at 14th Street and Third Avenue:

At those seven sites, the Food Truck Association and JetBlue expect to give out around 11,000 meals.
