Food truck lovers rejoice. Kroger and P&G will be presenting their third annual Food Truckin' for Josh Cares this Wednesday on Fountain Square.

From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., patrons can get a taste of delicious and diverse foods from over 15 food trucks, including giant gyros, Korean BBQ tacos, and much more.

Our own Frank Marzullo will be overseeing the event where guests are bound to have a great time while enjoying live entertainment and social media contests to win great prizes.

Warm 98's Marianne Curan and Bobbi Maxwell will broadcast the event and cover the Golden Spatula Awards for “Best Entrée” and “Best Sweet Treat” as determined by a celebrity judging panel.

All proceeds from the event will benefit Josh Cares, whose mission is “to provide comfort, support and companionship to seriously ill children enduring lengthy hospitalizations without a family member who is able to be with them consistently.”

Josh Cares Child Life Specialists serve as surrogates and links to the families who would be by their children's sides if they could. During the Festivities, there will be feature interviews with Josh Cares families and supporters.

Patrons will also have the chance to purchase Food Truck Bucks from Josh Cares volunteers, which can be redeemed for food and drinks.
