94% of survey respondents want food trucks to continue in Abbotsford

Pilot program was held last summer every weekend at Mill Lake Park

A total of 94 per cent of people surveyed about food trucks in Abbotsford said they would like to see the service continue every summer.

The survey was conducted last August on the City of Abbotsford website, drawing a total of 673 responses, according to a recent report to council.

The survey followed a pilot program for food trucks in designated city parks in summer 2021. The city worked with the Greater Vancouver Food Truck Association to schedule 11 trucks at Mill Lake Park every weekend.

The types of foods people wanted to see at the parks included burgers, Jamaican, kebabs, shaved ice, donairs, bannock, tacos, smoothies, smokies and gluten-free desserts.
