Food Truck Thursdays was initially launched back in 2015 as part of a pilot program to provide workers and visitors in the city additional food options during lunchtime. When the program first launched, the city says there were only eight vendors who participated during a three month trial. Now the number of participants has more than doubled.

According to the mayor's office, five vendors will be featured on Thursday, May 5. The food trucks include K Café, Maria’s Bene Cibo, Mineo & Sapio Street Eats, Polish Villa and Street Café.
