Councilmember Yvette M. Alexander announced the launch of Food Truck Wednesdays at the Department of Employment Services (DOES) in Ward 7.

From July 25 to Sept. 26, a different pair of DCFTA food trucks will be serving during lunchtime outside the Department of Employment Services at 4058 Minnesota Avenue NE (at Benning Road outside the Minnesota Avenue Metro Station).  “This is a great opportunity for those that work, shop and commute in the Downtown Ward 7 area to enjoy the convenience of food trucks that others enjoy throughout the city,” said Councilmember Alexander. “It’s a good balance to the limited access to sit-down restaurants that we currently have.”

The 10-week program was organized in partnership with DOES and the DC Food Trucks Association (DCFTA). Participating trucks include:

  • BBQ Bus
  • Popped! Republic
  • Big Cheese
  • Red Hook Lobster Pound
  • Curbside Cupcakes
  • Stix
  • DC Empanadas
  • Sweetbites
  • DC Slices
  • TaKorean
  • Goode’s Mobile Kitchen
  • Tapas Truck
  • Goodies Frozen Custard & Treats
  • Tasty Kabob
