Food Truck Tuesday to Benefit University Women of Flagler

The City of Palm Coast will host the return of its Food Truck Tuesday series on Tuesday, March 19 from 5pm-8pm in Central Park at Town Center. The series regularly takes place on the third Tuesday of each month from March through September and features over a dozen food trucks at each event. Each event features a designated beneficiary, who receives portions of the proceeds from the evening’s sales. For the month of March, event proceeds will benefit University Women of Flagler.

Founded in 2006, the University Women of Flagler is a local 501(c)3 organization comprised of college graduates that are dedicated to advancing educational opportunities for women and helping young women of Flagler County achieve their full potential. The group provides a number of scholarships for Flagler County high school students that are continuing their education in four-year programs as well as non-traditional students grants to local programs for adults returning to the workforce.

“We enjoy the opportunity to get out in the community for Food Truck Tuesday for a fun night out while bringing awareness to the work that we value so much,” said Jo Dervan, President of the University Women of Flagler. “Having the ability to encourage, support and render opportunities for those that want to further their education is something we are proud to do here locally in Flagler County and this is just one way we are able to bolster that initiative.”

The organization also has other means of fundraising throughout the year which includes fashion shows, an annual Day of Games event, and support other causes which include Take Stock in Children scholarship program, The Dolly Parton Imagination Library and local endeavors like the Family Life Center. As of May 2023, UWF has awarded over 100 scholarships to high school graduates totaling more than $160,000.
