Residents in Saanich will be able to grab something to eat while out a few local parks.
The District of Saanich announced that their food truck pilot program, which features 16 participating vendors, will begin on July 1.
Vendors will rotate between Beckwith, Cadboro-Gyro and Gorge Waterway parks and will choose their own operating hours between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. daily until the pilot program ends on Sept. 8.
“The pilot program will be an exciting — and tasty — addition to our parks this summer,” Judy Brownoff, district councillor, said in a press release, adding. “We’re happy to have a number of local entrepreneurs just starting out as well as seasoned veterans. I can’t wait to see our residents enjoying their treats in our wonderful parks.”
Participating vendors include To Go Food Service, Puerto Vallarta Amigos, Holy Cow Mini Donuts, Owen’s Ice Cream, Freshcoast Health Food Bar, Spice Aid – Operation BBQ, Cup-a-Roni, Quadra Village Community Centre Food Truck, Elements Ice Cream, Candytime Concession, SS Floats, Kattia’s Kitchen Authentic Mexican, Sassy Thai Café, Greek on the Street, BeaverTails Pastry, and Picnique Beatnique.
As the food truck program is merely a pilot project, the district says parks staff will be collecting feedback from vendors, customers and park users about the program in an effort to determine how successful it was.
