I became aware of Captain Quesadilla near the beginning of the pandemic when their charity work with Feeding America came across my facebook wall. Restaurants and food trucks working to feed their communities during lockdown was one of my favorite things to see. I set myself up to follow them immediately, and it has been more than a year since that point. I’ve seen a lot of opportunities to give them a visit pass me by. I feel bad for it.
There was even a point where I was messaging with them every few days trying to figure out where they’d be next, but my health in the summer was so down that I could never get myself out the door. The last few months have improved dramatically. When I saw Captain Quesadilla on the vendor list for the Oktoberfest out of Revolution Market, I knew I had to be there. I’ll support the location until I’m dead or move from the area. The opportunity to finally give this food truck its due was too good to resist.
Their charity work is to be commended. Every order you make contributes to at least one meal through Feeding America. This was especially important during the pandemic when unemployment was high and families struggling to make ends meet. It will always be important. Keep an eye on their facebook page or instagram if you want to try it yourself and help them make a difference in our communities. It can take some effort to find them day to day, and with cold weather starting to roll in, those chances will be even fewer.
