The Orlando Food Truck scene continues to explode with not only more Food Trucks, but with more Food Pod events. Starting today, there will be 2 Food Pods in Downtown Orlando, FL. What does this mean? More Food Trucks for the hungry people of Orlando!
What’s a Food Pod?
A Food Pod is a weekly event where a group of food trucks are parked together in one location, to serve the community their specialty food. Participating food trucks vary depending on location and day. Events are subject to change due to weather or private events, and Food Truck fans usually check Twitter or Facebook for current status and locations.
There will be two Food Pod events going on within a few blocks of each other in downtown Orlando. This is great because more Food Trucks can come out for business and are available to serve more people.
Here’s the info for the 2 Food Pods:
• TheDailyCity.com Food Pod 5-8pm at the corner of E. Amelia St. and Ruth Lane, behind Trinity Lutheran School. All trucks parked in soccer field. Event info
• Firestone Live Food Pod 6-10pm at Firestone Live (578 North Orange Avenue, Orlando, FL 32801). All trucks parked in rear parking lot on W. Concord St. for the event. Facebook Invite
*Attending Food Trucks may vary at times.
