When I was first looking for a bus I found a lot of ads for food trucks, and seeing what they typically sell for made me consider converting a bus into one (although a great deal of that cost is the cooking equipment that gets built into it).

I wonder if a quarantine lockdown situation would make food trucks successful like ice cream trucks used to be, where you could drive through neighborhoods selling food as you go. You'd have to build things a little differently so you could keep the kitchen running on the go.

Personally I'm not consuming any foods prepped by others, outside the family members I'm self-quarantining with

Me neither, but a lot of people can't cook.

An ice cream truck has been rollin around here today. Unusual but desperate times I guess.

I suppose a food truck is considered an essential service.

Philadelphia (the city proper) just issued a stay-at-home order that also shuts down food trucks and ice cream trucks.
