Food Trucks & Community Spirit Collide: Round-Up Returns at Smokey Hollow!

Mark your calendars, foodies! The Leon County Property Appraiser's annual "Lunchtime Food Truck Round-Up" is back for its third year, serving up delicious bites and supporting the United Way of the Big Bend.

This three-hour feast starts Wednesday at 11 AM and runs until 2 PM at Althemese Pemberton Barnes Park, Smokey Hollow Commemoration Site (364 S. Franklin Blvd). As Deputy Director of Public Relations Valencia Scott puts it, "Everybody loves to eat; everybody loves a food truck." And this event promises both – delectable dishes and community fun.

The team at the Property Appraiser's office sees this event as more than just lunch. It's a chance to "serve and educate our citizens while giving back to United Way," says Scott. They've gone beyond traditional fundraising to create a unique experience that benefits everyone involved.

Get ready to tantalize your taste buds with a variety of cuisines! From Rich Rob's Philly Stop's iconic sandwiches to Kona Ice's refreshing treats, Family Traditions BBQ's savory plates, and Zap Zap Thai Kitchen's flavorful dishes, there's something for every craving. With at least five trucks participating, you're guaranteed to find a new favorite.

But the deliciousness doesn't stop there. At least 20% of proceeds from each truck go directly to the United Way of the Big Bend, supporting their invaluable work in the community. Scott even mentioned some vendors in the past donating 100% – talk about giving back from the heart!

And hey, while you're enjoying the food and festivities, don't forget about the Property Appraiser's team. They'll be on hand to answer questions and ensure you're aware of any available property tax exemptions you might be missing out on. It's a win-win!

So gather your friends and family, and head to Smokey Hollow on Wednesday for a lunchtime filled with delicious eats, community spirit, and giving back. See you there!
