Food Trucks of Thanks

Food Trucks of Thanks are back! As part of our awesome GovLoop community, you're probably used to getting tons of resources and trainings for free. And now, along with our partner Cloudera, we're adding lunch to that list!

Join us and your public service peers Thursday, Sept. 19 from 11 a.m. - 1 p.m. ET in Washington, D.C. for Food Trucks of Thanks! We know how hard you work in government and we want to do our part to say thank you and that we appreciate everything you do.

We'll have four different food trucks serving from two different locations in Washington, D.C.:

  • Federal Triangle: BBQ Bus and DC Empanadas
  • Judiciary Square: Peruvian Brothers and Swizzler

All you need to do to claim your lunch is fill out the form to the right. You will receive a voucher via email that you must bring with you on September 19 or present on your phone to claim your lunch. This is a first-come, first-served event so we suggest getting in line early!

We will email you the morning of Thursday, Sept. 19 with the exact locations of the food trucks, as well as share on Twitter (@GovLoop).
