Navan Park in Melton West will be transformed into a foodie haven when food trucks cook up a storm for the next six months.

Weir Views mum Dotty Hazell has been busy organising Melton’s first recurring food truck event, with the first to be held next month.

“It’s just something I thought Melton needed,” Ms Hazell said.

“Instead of going to one takeaway shop and the whole family having to eat the same thing … you’ll be able to get a different range of foods. Kids have got somewhere to play at the park and everyone can pick what they want to pick.”

There will be a range of foods catering to various dietary requirements, including gluten-free, vegan and halal.

Ms Hazell hopes the food trucks will inject some colour, and culinary delights, into Melton.

She says the first session will include the likes of ice cream, fish and chips, and Indian street food.

The event will run from 5.30-8.30pm on the first Friday of each month (except for January, when it will be the second Friday of the month) at Navan Park, Centenary Avenue, Melton West.
