CG&FS Kicking Off Fourth Season of Food Truck Fridays with a FRENZY!
With the arrival of spring and anticipation of warmer weather, Child Guidance & Family Solutions (CG&FS) is excited to announce another season of Food Truck Fridays along with an evening Frenzy! to kick off the summer-long event. Last year, nearly 1,000 hungry “foodies” showed up to snack on street food delicacies, and this year there will be new menus to try and entertainment for the whole family!
On Friday, May 12th from 4p.m. – 8p.m. many of our Food Truck Friday favorites will be serving up everything from burrito bowls to bleu cheese burgers, crab sliders to cold brew coffee, and polenta cakes to popsicles in the CG&FS parking lot on the corner of North Forge & E. Market St. Bring your family or stop by with your co-workers and start off the weekend together. All trucks participating in the Frenzy will be serving lunches during the Food Truck Fridays lunch hour throughout the summer. Try a little of everything and keep an eye out for when your favorites return during lunchtime!
The traditional Food Truck Fridays lunch hour will be back for the fourth year each Friday, May 19th – September 2nd from 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. in the CG&FS parking lot. Favorites like The Orange Trük, Wholly Frijoles, Square Scullery, Swenson’s, Beachcomber, Manna Truck, Slop Truck, Betty’s Bomb A** Burgers, and Popsmith are returning, along with some new faces including Akron-based truck A Twist of Leona, Jackpot Chicken Food Truck, Fire House Grilling Co., and Flamingo Jack’s. Each Friday 3-4 trucks will be serving up their specialties – check the Akron Food Truck Fridays Facebook page to see which trucks are on the lineup for each week. Rain or shine, lunch will be served every Friday in the CG&FS parking lot at the corner of North Forge & East Market in Akron. Eat it here, or take it to go, there will always be great eats for more-than-reasonable prices.
Eat your favorites and support Child Guidance & Family Solutions! All trucks and vendors donate a portion of their proceeds to support the work we do for children in our community who suffer from issues such as bullying, abuse, trauma, concerns for suicide, and other challenges to their mental and emotional well-being.
