Food truck roundup! Wednesday June 11

There will be a Food Truck Wednesday Roundup this Wednesday June 11 starting 5:00 p.m. at University Baptist Church.

What is a food truck roundup? It is when several different food trucks all come to one place – so it is easy for you to see all the different food trucks that work in this city and you can choose from any of them. Many of them serve high quality “gourmet” food. There will also be games and fun activities. 10% of the profits will support missions for youth.
