Starting next week, the Southborough Rotary Club is turning St. Mark’s “Front Meadow” back into a destination for foodies on Wednesdays. (Though, just for four weeks.)
The 4-part “Food Truck Festival” will kick off on Wednesday, May 22nd, 3:30 – 7:30 pm. The event will repeat on Wednesdays through June 12th.
Each week, the Rotary will feature a changing lineup of four food trucks selling dinner. You can top off your meal with dessert from a truck selling ice cream scoops.
There is no admission charge to attend. In fact, if you play your cards right, you can get free grub in return for supporting another charity.
Rotary hopes the public will fill-a-jeep in support of homeless veterans. The first 100 people to donate two new pairs of “Socks for Veterans” will be rewarded with a voucher:
We are asking people bring new socks, white athletic preferred (diabetic if possible), to the festival and donate them to help homeless Veterans. Look for the Army Jeep on the field; help us fill the Jeep with donated socks. CityWide of Boston, located here in Southborough, is sponsoring this effort for all four Wednesdays of the festival. Main Street Bank has generously offered to give the first 100 donors a $10.00 food truck voucher to anyone bringing two or more pairs of new socks.
That drive isn’t the only good work Rotary supports. So, they’ll also be happy to take financial donations from people who want to support their sponsorship efforts.
Still, the main purpose for the festival is putting on a feel good, community event downtown.
Next Wednesday’s truck line up has already been announced on Facebook:
Streat Food Rx, Teddy’s LunchBox, The Dogfather, Travelin’ Bones Barbecue, and Trombetta’s Farm Ice cream. AND there will be music that night provided by Southborough Cultural Arts Council. Reach out if you’re interested in being a sponsor – great event to see & be seen at!
For details on the following weeks, you can look for updates on their Facebook page.
Updated (5/22/19 3:38 pm): It turns out that the Festival is until 7:30 pm (not 7 as I originally misstated.) They’re also promising live music from Live music on site from approx. 5:30-6:30 pm.
