Ithaca Dish Truck Seeks Volunteers

Reduce disposable event waste, and enjoy good company, free food...

Benefits to volunteering with us include behind the scenes admission to great events, a yummy meal from one of our many local food purveyors, knowledge that you are making a solid and positive environmental and social justice impact, shared company with like-minded people in a lively environment and more. (sometimes we even get standing ovations!)

If you have any questions or want to set schedule a Dish Truck for an event please email Dish Truck coordinator, Joey Diana Gates at or call (607) 644-5525.
