Dallas and Fort Worth Area Food Trucks Want to Help With Disaster Relief

Rock 'n' Roll Taco's Former Support Vehicle (from RnR Twitter link)

Several of the local food trucks are already out helping with disaster relief.  So-Cal Tacos is in the Arlington/Kennedale area helping out.  The Butcher’s Son is sending one of their trucks out to help.  Many of our local food trucks are donating their tips to disaster relief. If you are an organization in need of assistance with feeding crews or families during clean-up, put your contact information in the comments section, and hopefully, you will hear from one of the food trucks to help.

Rock ‘n’ Roll Tacos won’t be one of those helping out as they themselves are recovering from tornado damage. I’m sure many of you saw this car on the news yesterday. It was the car of Mary Ann Quiñonez, the owner and operator of Rock ‘n’ Roll Tacos. She was picking up her daughter at Crosby Elementary School in the Diamond Creek subdivision of Forney, and just missed being in the car that was tossed 100 yards into the next field. Luckily, Mary Ann and her daughter escaped the car and ran for safety to the school before it was hurled away.

Update: Enticed Shaved Ice is donating 100% of sales tonight to the Red Cross.  They’ll be located at the Walgreens at Midway and Frankford.

Update: Bud Kennedy reports via Twitter:  “Food truck @SoCalTacos and others being turned away from feeding Arlington relief workers, per FB; it’s a secured area.”
