Reminder — The Rotary Club of Southborough is bringing back its popular Food Trucks series. The weekly “Festival” will open in a week from today.

On Wednesday afternoons – evenings, May 24 – June 14, four dinner trucks and one ice cream truck will  be parked on the downtown Southborough field. (That’s St. Mark’s School’s field at the corner of Routes 85 & 30). Scroll down for the food vendor lineup with links.

Rotary’s main purpose for organizing the annual festival is as a feel good, community event — with no admission fee. But they also use it as a platform for their charitable initiatives.

This spring, Rotary is again partnering with Main Street Bank to offer a food vouchers in exchange for a charitable contribution. This time, under the banner “Food for Thought”, the fundraising cause is their own scholarship program:

The scholarship fund was initiated over 20 years ago with a memorial grant to commemorate the life of Annie Laurie Satterfield. As in the past, this year the Rotary Club of Southborough awarded a $4,000 scholarship to a Southborough student who is accepted to one of the Massachusetts’ state universities and has demonstrated a record of academic excellence.

To continue and expand this scholarship program, this years service project is aimed at enhancing the financial position of the scholarship fund.

We are calling this effort “Food for Thought”. Again with the help of Main Street Bank we will be offering the purchase of $10.00 food vouchers that can be used as cash at the food trucks. Vouchers can be obtained from the Rotary Club at the festival for a $20.00 donation. Think of it as a bit of generosity you can sink your teeth into.

Rotary’s announcement includes a thank you to the following sponsors:

Saint Mark’s School
Main Street Bank
Metrowest Minisplits
Middlesex Bank
Cedar Brook Pediatric Dentistry
Long Cadillac
Falconi’s Oil
Southborough Community Fund

The trucks are scheduled for 3:30 pm to 7:00 pm. As promised, here is the planned food vendor lineup. (Note: Sometimes there are last minute adjustments):

There are no rain dates posted. I’ve been told in the past years that events are rain or shine, but I’m guessing that’s within reason. (If weather for one of these events is forecast for torrential rain/thunder for the entire three hours, I’d look for news on cancellation/postponement.)

*It looks like the June 7th lineup will include either The Grub Guru or a ramen truck.
