Kansas Food Truck Festival
The Fourth Annual Kansas Food Truck Festival is being held today from 4pm to 10pm in the Warehouse Arts District. It’s an event to benefit Just Food, the Douglas County Food Bank.
This year the Food Truck Festival is returning with 30 food trucks, an expanded lineup of live entertainment, and a beer garden. Entertainment is comprised of family-friendly activities including face painting, and a bouncy house as well as live street performers from the Lawrence Busker Festival and live musical performances by local musicians.
Tickets cost $10, you can get them at the door, and children under 12 are free! Your ticket covers entrance to the festival and gives you access to all 30 food trucks and 4 stages of live entertainment.
The Kansas Food Truck Festival has grown each year since its start in 2014, adding more food trucks and more live entertainment. Last year’s event raised $41,000 becoming Just Food’s largest annual fundraiser, and helping provide meals for the nearly 12,000 Douglas County residents.
Just Food supplies more than 40 partner agencies with frozen meat and fresh produce as well as bread and food donated from community drives. They also specialize in direct client service through programs like Just Grow, Just Cook and Cooking Healthy Futures. Just Food and its partners play a key role in fighting hunger in our community by increasing the availability of a variety of foods and helping to reduce waste and discarded food.
