Food trucks in and around NJ survived the pandemic shutdowns
So many people in the live event business were really hurt during the shutdowns and cancellations due to the pandemic. There were theater people and not just actors. The lighting and sound people were affected, too. The DJ's and photographers and caterers, etc.
Food truck owners had to find a way to survive, and many did.
We asked our listeners for their favorite food trucks or if they own one to call in last week. And, oh yeah, they're still around waiting for the weather to break and get out there.
Some are operating outside of busy workplaces and construction sites and truckin' on. Here are some of the New Jersey food trucks you can still see at various spots around the state.
