“I wholeheartedly support the addition of food trucks to our dining scene in downtown Greensboro. Food trucks will get more people downtown to explore, keep more people who work downtown local for lunch, and improve the vitality of downtown on the whole. Limiting our food options because we are fearful of the unknown will limit Greensboro’s growth overall. A vibrant, exciting downtown has been a key element of Greensboro’s future. Food trucks are not the only solution to the continued revitalization of downtown – but are most certainly a part of it!” Mindy Oakley
