Nearly a dozen local food trucks will adopt a pay-what-you-can model for a unique kind of rodeo this weekend.
A Place at the Table, the popular Raleigh non-profit cafe, will host a food truck rodeo this Sunday based on its pay-what-you-can model.
Here are the details:
The Place at the Table Food Truck Rodeo will be held Sunday, June 4 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Food trucks will be lined up across the street from A Place at the Table at 300 W. Hargett St. in Downtown Raleigh.
Given the enormous popularity of the Triangle’s food truck scene, rodeos are a common showcase of the mobile cuisine diners can devour. But this food truck rodeo is a little different.
Tickets: Based on the Place at the Table model, for this rodeo, diners can pay for meal tickets for themselves and buy meals for those who might need them. Each meal ticket, either for yourself or to donate, is $12. Dessert tickets are $8 and all tickets can be purchased in advance.
The food truck lineup includes some of the Triangle’s most popular mobile kitchens. Here’s who you’ll find on Sunday:
- The Spinning Plate
- Magdalena’s Chimney Cakes
- AMPM Burritos
- Season It Up Vegan
- Goodness GraceUs
- Aries Dish Delivered
This is the second annual Food Truck Rodeo for A Place at the Table and its founder Maggie Kane. The non-profit cafe first opened in 2018 and has given away thousands of meals to diners in need in Raleigh and has been featured in numerous national and local publications.
