Lincoln extends food truck pilot program after 5 more suppliers apply

If you’re downtown and want to grab a sandwich — or a taco, maybe — from a food truck, you’ll have a little more time.

Fall for beautiful fall weather.

A pilot program to expand the city’s food truck program in parts of downtown — near the State Office Building at 14th and L streets and in the South Haymarket under the Rosa Parks Way overpass — began in May .

It was supposed to end on Tuesday, but the city’s Dan Marvin told council Monday that the city had recently requested five more food trucks, and the nice weather will give them a chance to try out downtown locations.

This will give city officials more data and input from food truck vendors to use to evaluate the pilot and come up with a permanent program, he said.
