Freebie Alert: Food Trucks Go 4G, Give Free Lunches Today

The Lardon Truck (Elise Thompson/LAist)
Before you read this story...
Dear reader, we're asking for your help to keep local reporting available for all. Your financial support keeps stories like this one free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

I don't know if it was a typo, but the press release for today's Sprint Free Food Truck Lunches event included the line "Out to Launch?" which is, contextually, brilliant.Why? Well, today Sprint is celebrating the upcoming launch of their 4G broadband service in Southern California, by having four of the area's beloved food trucks give out free lunch. Which means you can go out to lunch while they are out to launch!

You want specifics, I know. This is free food we're talking about. Between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. (or until they run out of lunch) find these four trucks in these four spots:
- NomNom Truck: Corner of Olympic and Bundy, Santa Monica
- Lardon: Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandise (Hope and 9th), DTLA
- Dan Dan BBQ: 625 N Grand Ave, Santa Ana
- Louks Greek Gourmet: Corner of W. Chapman Ave. and Harbor Blvd., Anaheim

The trucks will be set up with 4G, so you can Tweet super fast while in line (probably to complain about waiting, but, hey, that's how it goes.) Happy l(a)unching!
