On Friday Nov 2nd, Jet Blue and the NYC Food Truck Association are teaming up to serve thousands of hot meals to New Yorkers without power.

The NYCFTA says 15 food trucks will participate. So far we know about Mexico Blvd, SweeteryNYC, CupcakeCrew, Big D’s Grub Truck and Coolhaus. More to be announced.

According to Jet Blue this is “Just our way of giving back to our very own hometown. #WeLoveNY”.

 

We will update as soon as we get to the office tomorrow morning, as we are one of the powerless living below 23rd St.

Jetblue is a big fan of food trucks.  Their LIC food truck lot (which is closed for the season), was well frequented by Jetblue employees due to its proximity to the Jetblue headquarters.  Jetblue were sponsors of the Vendy Awards in NYC and the NYC/BOS food truck throwdown in October (http://www.foodtruckthrowdown.com). 

A Big THANK YOU to the  NYC Food Truck Association and Jet Blue. We will remember this next time we have to fly somewhere.
