Go Burger truck is set to drive out to some of the areas that are still recovering from Hurricane Sandy and dish out grub for free (you can see the schedule at the end of this post). In the immediate aftermath of Sandy, food trucks became an essential fixture in the areas without power. Many mobile eateries (Go Burger included) parked in Manhattan's Powerless Zone, and the city of Hoboken even issued a call for trucks to come and help feed the folks who were stranded in shelters.
Go Burger's partner/president Keith Treyball was inspired to give away grub this weekend by his time serving Downtown. The truck set up shop and dished out hot food near the company's shuttered restaurants (i.e BLT Burger) and responded to requests from social media to see which locations were asking for assistance. "People definitely came out," says Treyball, "they were extremely thankful that the truck came down, and it was great that we were able to help out and do our small part for the people who were without power." He reports that it almost felt like a normal day out, with a steady flow of people stopping by.
