For the second year running, a pop-up food court of 11 trucks will take place as part of Dining Out for Life.

The feed will be set up on Locust Street between Juniper and 13th Streets from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Thursday, April 24. 

The trucks will donate more than a third of their proceeds to ActionAIDS, which created the Dining Out for Life promotion. 

ActionAIDS volunteer Verna Swerdlow, who runs the Vernalicious food truck, is again the catalyst. 

Participating trucks include: Vernalicious, The Cow and the Curd, Foo Truck, Spot Burgers, Delicias, Gigi's & Big R, The Farm Truck, Cupcake Carnival, Mac Mart, Nomad Pizza and Johnny Bravo Crab cakes. 

Dining Out for Life is that evening. For the complete list of participating restaurants and food, call 1-877-EAT4LIFE (1-877-328-45433) or go here.
