The Denton County Transportation Authority will conduct the first of five Mouthwatering Wednesdays food truck lunchtime events from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. today at the Euline Brock Downtown Denton Transit Center.
The weekly events have been planned by DCTA and Gabriel Kirkpatrick, owner/operator of the Lean Machine food truck.
Last summer, DCTA conducted its first set of food truck events as part of a pilot program.
Officials said the events were a success, and the agency wants to bring back this lunchtime dining option for DCTA passengers and the Denton community. Three food trucks will participate each week on a rotaing basis.
The Lean Machine, Pickled Carrot and Shitake Swerve food trucks will kick off the first event today.
DCTA and Kirkpatrick will announce future food truck participants via social media. Future dates for the trucks are Jan. 29, Feb. 5, Feb. 12 and Feb. 19.
Pending feedback from the Denton community, Kirkpatrick and DCTA may expand the food truck event dates past Feb. 19.
For more information about the Mouthwatering Wednesdays events, check out DCTA’s Facebook and Twitter pages.
Vendors interested in participating in future events can contact Kirkpatrick at 940-367-2332.
