BostInno reported yesterday that your future lunch break is about to drastically improve, folks! In the past, food truck fans weren’t able to get their Roxy’s Grilled Cheese, and other mobile eats-fill after October on the Plaza. Thankfully, that’s about to change. Last week, Mayor Marty Walsh announced that moving forward, City Hall Plaza’s mobile food truck vending will be a year-round program, which includes this winter.
Mayor Walsh stated in a release:
The City of Boston continues to support local businesses … Lunch shifts are of the most desirable to food trucks and particularly those on City Hall Plaza due to heavy pedestrian traffic and increased sales. City Hall Plaza also offers the greatest variety of fare as individual food trucks can vend only once per week at this location. I’m pleased that we are able to offer additional opportunities for these businesses.”
According to Tara Hatala, mobile food truck coordinator, Bostonians will have access to three different food trucks on City Hall Plaza each day this winter, Monday through Friday. A winter schedule should be in place by this Friday, October 24, notes the release.
Currently the City of Boston’s mobile food truck program consists of 70 food trucks. The Office of Food Initiatives will hold a mini lottery for the City Hall Plaza site this winter for all permitted food trucks in the city.
