Free Food Truck Fare for Storm Victims

Today some area residents who are suffering from storm damage will get  free lunch -- courtesy of a trio of local food trucks.

TaKorean, The Big Cheese, and Pepe will hit the streets to feed local storm victims in D.C. and Silver Spring. While the plan was originally to have all the trucks in one spot, Big Cheese owner Patrick Rathbone said it made more sense to do two locations, since the trucks are mobile.

Two trucks are heading to Benning Park Community Center in Southeast D.C. and one will be at the Long Branch Library in Silver Spring.

"We're sending two to Ward 7 because that's one of the hardest hit areas in D.C.," said Patrick Rathborne.

Other food trucks wanted to get in on the act, Rathborne said, but  their kitchens were affected by power outages, too. "The trucks that were fortunate enough to avoid disaster with the storm decided to pitch in," he said.
