FOOD trucks will roll into more than 10 parks across the City of Wanneroo again this spring and summer.

The City has been facilitating the popular food truck program since 2017, which gives residents and visitors the opportunity to gather together in parks and community spaces to enjoy a range of culinary delights.

The program is run by independent operators, including coordinator Khoa Mai from FOOD HUB Central and creator of Wanneroo Street Food and Street Food Circus.

Mr Mai said there had been a lot of interest from food vendors this season with the number increasing from 20 to 50.

“Customers will be spoilt for choice with many food options including pizza, Indian, Chinese Korean, and a Brazilian barbeque,” he said.

Mr Mai, who also runs the authentic Vietnamese street food truck Banh Mizzle said he had seen food trucks grow in popularity over the years.

“People used to associate food trucks with unhealthy fast food; now vendors serve cheap gourmet meals that would not look out of place in an expensive restaurant,” he said.

Proposed park locations for the 2019-20 food truck program include Paloma Park in Alexander Heights, Peridot in Banksia Grove, Kingsbridge in Butler, Liddell in Girrawheen, Amery in Hocking, Kingsway in Madeley, Shelvock and Butterworth in Koondoola, Warradale in Landsdale, Charnwood in Two Rocks and Wanneroo Skate Park.
