Food Truck Pilot Program rolls out July 1

Saanich, BC – Saanich Parks’ Food Truck Pilot Program will start rolling this week. Sixteen of the region’s finest food truck vendors will rotate through Beckwith, Cadboro-Gyro and Gorge Waterway Parks from July 1 until September 8.

“The pilot program will be an exciting—and tasty—addition to our parks this summer,” said Parks, Trails and Recreation Committee Chair and Councillor Judy Brownoff. “We’re happy to have a number of local entrepreneurs just starting out as well as seasoned veterans. I can’t wait to see our residents enjoying their treats in our wonderful parks. To help respect and keep our parks clean during the pilot, please ensure you use the appropriate recycling and waste bins.”

Participating vendors include To Go Food Service, Puerto Vallarta Amigos, Holy Cow Mini Donuts, Owen’s Ice Cream, Freshcoast Health Food Bar, Spice Aid – Operation BBQ, Cup-a-Roni, Quadra Village Community Centre Food Truck, Elements Ice Cream, Candytime Concession, SS Floats, Kattia’s Kitchen Authentic Mexican, Sassy Thai Café, Greek on the Street, BeaverTails Pastry, and Picnique Beatnique. Together these vendors offer a wide range of sweet and savoury foods including ethnic, locally sourced, vegetation and vegan menu items.

Vendors will choose their own operating hours between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. daily.

Parks staff will collect feedback from vendors, customers and park users throughout the pilot this summer to assess the success of the program and make it even better going forward.
