According to its website, the 60-year-old garden center and landscaping company wanted to “pay it forward” to struggling food trucks suffering from a loss of business due to food truck events being canceled thanks to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Popular food trucks who have vended there or will vend there soon are:
Ma and Pa’s Tex-Mex BBQ
Mary’s Mobile Diner
Red’s Rolling Restaurant
The Chilly Banana
The Little Sicilian
The Munchy Machine
More to come!
They even have an area set up outside with some tables and chairs and frequently update their website, Facebook, and email list with schedule and information.
Social distancing guidelines are required to enjoy food from the food truck vendors on-site. Most trucks accept credit cards and some take Venmo or Paypal.
Flagg’s seems like the place to be this summer for your food truck fix!
Mary Hilbert of Mary’s Mobile Diner is on a mission to make sure the essential healthcare workers and first responders at Cooper Hospital in Camden are supplied with fresh hot meals made to order during this difficult time.
Mary recruited fellow South Jersey food trucks Red’s Rolling Restaurant and Not Your Mama’s Tacos to line up outside of Cooper’s Emergency Room every night usually between 11PM-2AM (hours may vary) to feed the tireless medical professionals who are risking their own lives during the COVID-19 crisis.
Additionally, Mary is asking for the public’s help and is accepting donations via Venmo that will go towards hot meals for the hospital workers, EMTs, and police officers who are dealing with this healthcare crisis. So far, over 400 meals have been donated, but her goal is to grant at least 1,000 meals to these local heroes.
“These folks are working hard and we want to make sure they’re taken care of,” says Mary. “We’re happy to support these amazing people!”
If you’d like to donate a meal, Venmo @FTFL-Cooper.
