Let’s face it, who doesn’t like a good food truck? Deliciously prepared meals from a roadside truck just seems to taste better. Also known as convenience meals on wheels, food trucks are taking on a whole different role during the COVID-19 pandemic. While they are still providing yummy meals, it’s their locations and clientele that has changed. Pre-pandemic Austin area food trucks lined downtown city streets and office business parks. Today, they’re finding semi-permanent parking spaces in suburban communities like Travisso.
Lifestyle Director Candice Roy manages the food truck schedule for Travisso residents. She started the program in April to add an element of normalcy during the height of COVID-19. The food trucks provide quick weeknight meals. And also a welcome break for work-at-home parents juggling both a job and virtual learning. Plus, it allows residents to meet-up with neighbors they haven’t seen and give them a reason to leave their homes. According to Roy business is booming. Residents must pre-order to participate. Let’s eat!
