Whatever your deal, we’ve got your angle covered:

Make it a Date
What a great way to enjoy a lunch time date with that special someone in your life.  We’ll have tables both inside and out.  If the weather’s nice, bring a blanket and have a romantic picnic, food truck style.

Find a Date
Still looking for that special someone? What a great opportunity to find yourself a date for the evening. Make use of the time you spend waiting in line and chat, flirt, and mingle!

Be Bitter
Angry at the world for creating a holiday to rub your singledom in your face?  What better way to soothe your rage than with the delicious comfort foods our trucks have to offer?  And you don’t even have to share.

Take a Picture with a Cow
(You weren’t expecting that one, were you?) Visit the RTP Headquarters lobby and meet the newest member of our team, Bessie, the Binary Bovine.  Take a picture with her.  Scan her QR code.  Instagram the two of you together (and tag it #BinaryBessie).

Just Eat
No problem.  Here’s the list of the trucks that will be joining us:

Give a Book. Change a Life.

Standard

Community Outreach@rtp will be running a book drive from April 19 to May 15, and we need your new and gently used children’s books!

Books in the home are the single biggest predictor of academic success – yet more than half of our country’s low-income children do not own a single book, setting them up to struggle in school and to perpetuate the cycle of poverty.

The books we collect will be donated to Books on Break, a program to enable Durham’s low-income children to select up to ten books to take home and keep at the end of the school year.  These books will help arrest the summer slide that plagues low-income children and that contributes to the achievement gap.

There are a few easy ways to participate:

  • Between now and May 15th, simply drop your book donations in the specially marked bins located at RTP Headquarters, 12 Davis Drive (and at the Food Truck Rodeo on the 19th).  Your company may be hosting drop off bins as well.
  • If you don’t have gently used books at home to donate, please consider purchasing new books.  To make it even easier, buy books from Books on Break’s Amazon wish list and have them shipped directly to the RTP Headquarters:  http://amzn.com/w/1HQGXBNUBPF0X
    OR
    Stop by the Regulator Bookshop on Ninth Street in Durham and purchase a new book to donate to Books on Break; you’ll receive a 20% discount.

We need books for elementary school children (1st through 6th grade), from picture books to chapter books.  And we are grateful for both new books and gently used books that your kids may have outgrown.

Books on Break is a joint project of Community Outreach@rtp (a committee of the RTP Owners and Tenants Assocation), Book Harvest and Durham Public Schools.

To learn more, please visit www.bookharvestnc.org and www.rtp.org/community. And if you’d like to host a drop off location at your office, we have sign templates and flyers available at www.rtp.org/community.

Thank you for helping Triangle kids experience the joy of book ownership this summer!
