We worked closely with the Winnebago County Health Department to review operation plans and site logistics

We added trucks and truck locations so we can accommodate up to 14 trucks each week and keep lines shorter.

We stretched the food trucks across 4 parking areas from Symbol parking lot to the Swan Anderson parking lot to allow for better line spacing

Stretching out truck locations has also made it so wherever you park on our riverfront, you are just a short walk to a food truck

We eliminated alcohol from the event for the start of the season

We created a layout that reduced the opportunity for lines to cross or overlap

Every truck is providing their own cones and/ or painters tape lines to indicate 6 foot line spacings

Hand sanitizer is required at every truck’s cashier station

Our public restrooms are inspected and cleaned hourly during the event

We encourage cashless transactions to minimize cash handling

We setup Square invoicing and online payments for the food trucks to reduce cash handling and provide receipts

Masks are required for our food truck staff preparing and serving food

Masks are required for guests while in line, ordering, and picking up food from the food trucks. Masks are encouraged, but not required for guests outside as long as they can maintain 6 foot distancing.

Food Truck Tuesday schedules, capacities, and plans are subject to change with changing guidance form the Centers for Disease Control, State of Illinois, and Winnebago County Health Department.
