If you check the Midtown Lunch Twitter Tracker today, what you’ll find is that many of our beloved food trucks are giving away free food to those affected by Hurricane Sandy. As first reported by Businessweek, this effort is sponsored by JetBlue and from tweets we could gather that this effort is coordinated in part by the NYC Office of Emergency Management. Wafels and Dinges and Big D’s Grub Truck were featured in the article, and more food trucks are out helping today. Toum NYC, Wafels and Dinges, and Rickshaw Dumplings are at Astor Place; Milk Truck and Frites & Meats are in Chelsea (19th and 8th); Eddie’s Pizza is in the Far Rockaways; Coolhaus and Big D’s Grub are at NYU; and Sweetery NYC and Mexico Blvd are at Tompkins Square Park.
Thanks to Wined and Dined for pointing this one out to us via twitter… the “Mac Truck” is parked on 55th btw. Park+Madison today.

And speaking of street food, if you’ve been wanting to try Ma Peche’s street meat inspired large format dinner but didn’t want to shell out the cash, next Friday (8/17) is a pretty good chance to do it. There are still tickets to the 56th Street Round Table at Ma Peche next week (featuring our very own Zach!) The price includes a ticket to the discussion about the history of street food in New York City, and then you get lunch afterwards that includes a sampling of their street-meat inspired large format dinner! There are only a few tickets left, so you might want to get on that sooner rather than later.
