Food Truck Information

Find Your Food Truck

Great local food provided by Rhode Island food trucks is served at select locations in Rhode Island State Parks. 

RI State Parks have a carry in-carry out policy, which means there are no trash cans for general use. Food trucks will provide a trash receptacle for the exclusive use of their customers. If you take your food to another location in the park, please help us keep our parks clean and take your trash home with you. Thank you!
 
To help you find the food truck in your favorite park, we've provided links to locations below. Food trucks are not available every day. For the most up-to-date dates and locations, go to the RI Parks Events Page or the Community Calendar.

Food Trucks for Private Events in State Parks

Park patrons who wish to hire a food truck for a special event must select a food truck from this list or ask their desired food truck to register as an approved food truck.

Here's what you need to know:  
  1. The organizer of any event requesting a food truck should first contact the park management at the Rhode Island State Park where they are hoping to host the event. You can find a list of parks and their phone numbers at riparks.com. Any proposed event must stay within social gathering limits and abide by any other restrictions associated with the COVID-19 public health emergency, and approval of your event is at the discretion of park management.
  2. Park patrons who wish to hire a food truck for a private gathering must select a food truck from the list of Approved Food Trucks for RI State Parks or ask their desired food truck to register as an Approved Food Truck.
  3. Food trucks serving private events may not park in the spaces designated for the State Park Food Truck Program. The park management will instruct you where the food truck may park for private events.
  4. There is no daily charge for food trucks to serve at a private event, as long as they have an annual Food Truck Permit. Food trucks serving private parties are not permitted to serve the general public and must be paid directly by the host of the event.
  5. If food trucks have any questions about how to become an Approved Food Truck in the State Park Program, please call 401-667-6200.
