The popular event, “Food Truck Safari,” returns to the Palm Beach Zoo & Conservation Society on Saturday, May 31, 2014, from 4:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. Food truck windows open at 5:30 p.m. Guests are invited to “feed your inner animal” at some of South Florida’s best food trucks, enjoy live music by André Michaud in the Mayan Plaza and the ShinDig Duo in the Fountain Area, along with exciting zookeeper talks and up-close animal encounters.
The following food trucks are scheduled to appear: Poor Boy’s Kitchen, Monster Burger, Tacos Veracruz, Paradise Shave Ice and more to be announced. Thanks to Food Truck Collective for scheduling the trucks.
Beer & Wine is available for those 21 and older. (The Palm Beach Zoo has a zero-tolerance policy regarding underage drinking. Absolutely no service without legal photo ID.)
Zoo admission for the Food Truck Safari is $9 for adult members, $10 for adult non-members, $6 for child members, $7 for child non-members and children under three are free. Gate proceeds support regular Zoo operations. The last admission ticket will be sold at 8 p.m.
Food and beverage purchases are not included in admission. All food trucks are donating a portion of their proceeds toward Zoo operations. Trucks accept cash or credit.
The Zoo encourages all food trucks to apply sustainable practices in their daily operations, and will once again give a “Sustainability Award” to the truck that excels in the most environmental and conservation sustainability categories in our checklist. Past winners include The Daily Special, Food Island, Pescados Unidos and Tacos Veracruz.
