Palm Coast's upcoming Food Truck Tuesday on July 16 will raise funds for kids next summer to attend a city summer camp.

Food Truck Tuesday will be a Central Park in Town Center from 5-8 p.m., with multiple food trucks and a special performance from a traveling BMX stunt show. The funds raised at the event will go to the city's Summer Camp Scholarship Fund for summer in 2025.

 Each year, the fund assists local families in need with sending their children to Palm Coast’s Fun in the Sun Summer Camp, a Palm Coast press release said. The camp starts on June 3, runs until Aug. 9 for kindergartners to fifth graders. It costs $95 per week to attend.

This year the fund — which is also garners federal support from Housing and Urban Development — was able to give scholarships to 73 local children to attend camp. 

“Summer Camp is a very special experience in the lives of many children,” said Ashley Lewis, Youth Recreation specialist at Palm Coast Parks and Recreation. “It’s a place where kids can learn new things, make new friends, and having the ability to foster those connections through our scholarship fund, which is extremely rewarding to us.” 

The funds raised this year will be able to provide scholarships for an additional 5 families to attend the camp in 2025. Each year, the Fun in the Sun Camp enrolls hundreds of campers from grade levels K-5 every Summer for the nine-week program.

The food trucks at the June 16 event will include the following: Wrap Daddy, The Happy Lemon Co., Cool Beans, The Knot, Wicked Good Mini Donuts, Kona Ice, Monsta Lobsta, Original Philly Cheeseteak, Kerala Express, FILO Greek, Chonky's Kitchen, Sheila's Funnel Cakes, The Wandering Hoagie and Crazy Good Eats.
