KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Greenwood, Missouri, is calling for food trucks to post up in its parks during the COVID-19 pandemic.

At a time when stay-at-home orders are in effect, social distancing is encouraged and some local businesses are struggling, the city's Parks and Recreation Department posted the call to its Facebook page.

The department said it wants "to help the small business that have helped our community through past events and school functions."

The city is looking to schedule food trucks to park at Hitt Park and Freedom Park beginning this week. It can accommodate two trucks at Hitt Park and one at Freedom park.

"Park at the Park" will continue through the end of the stay-at-home order.

Anyone who attends is asked to follow social distancing guidelines.

Greenwood Parks and Recreation said the trucks will need a temporary business license. Though the city is waiving fees for those licenses, officials still need an application filed at City Hall, the department said.

Interested applicants should download the form and email it, along with requested dates, to

We've created a Facebook group, We're Open Kansas City, where members of the community can post businesses serving their community.
