Traveling Food Truck Festival Kicks Off 2013 Season at Capitol Riverfront 


WASHINGTON, DC – The 2013 Curbside Cookoff food truck festival series kicks off July 13 at Capitol Riverfront, with donations made at the festival entrance to benefit Miriam’s Kitchen, the Food Truck Association of Metropolitan Washington announced today.

The food truck festival is noon to 7 pm Saturday, July 13, at 200 K Street SE. A suggested donation of $1 will be collected for Miriam’s Kitchen, which works to end chronic homelessness in DC.

“Much like food trucks, our guests here at Miriam’s Kitchen live and die by the streets. Both our guests and those of food trucks expect and deserve the highest-quality meals turned out by our tiny kitchens!” says Emily Hagel, a chef at Miriam’s Kitchen.

Curbside Cookoff at Capitol Riverfront features:

  • Nearly 20 of your favorite food trucks
  • Live broadcast by CBS Radio, the official radio sponsor of Curbside Cookoff
  • Bar
  • Children’s area

“We’re thrilled to kick-off this year’s Curbside Cookoff festivals with Miriam’s Kitchen,” said Doug Povich, chairman of the Food Truck Association of Metropolitan Washington. “Our partnership is part of our ongoing efforts to support great local community organizations making real differences in people’s lives.”
