The Philadelphia Mobile Food Association (PMFA), created to aid in the growth of the food truck craze, has organized the first of what they hope to be a series of pop-ups around the city.
With the support of the public at the food truck gatherings, among a list of goals, PMFA is working hard to amend the prohibited streets list for vendors, extend hours of operation beyond midnight and revitalize corridors that promote pedestrian traffic.
A kick-off to an already packed weekend of food-studded events (Philadelphia Wine Festival, Cinco de Mayo, Burger Brawl, The Sandwich Experiment, Taste of the Nation) PMFA will host their first event outside the Lutheran Settlement House in Fishtown, Friday, May 4, 6-11 p.m. serving a selection of brews and bites for all.
Expect to see treats from Little Baby’s Ice Cream, Pitruco Wood-Fired Pizza, SPOT serving everything burgers, steaks and pork and Zea May’s kitchen dishing Native American inspired cuisine.
A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Lutheran Settlement House, a non-profit aiding the community through adult education and employment, domestic violence, senior services and homeless services.
