Expecting moms, soon-to-be partners and anyone with a craving can visit the University of Minnesota Health Pickles & Ice Cream Food Truck on Aug. 21 for free pickles, ice cream and more information about our newly renovated Birthplace at University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital.
The food truck, a light-hearted reference to the eclectic food cravings some women experience during pregnancy, will be visiting Peavey Plaza in downtown Minneapolis from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 21. The food truck will serve Gedney Baby Dill pickles and three flavors of locally sourced Sweet Science ice cream, including vanilla, chocolate sorbet and berry crumble. Ice cream and pickles will be available while supplies last.
The tongue-in-cheek idea is raising awareness of a $21 million upgrade to the M Health Birthplace, including:
These crave-worthy upgrades match the unparalleled care patients can find at the Birthplace, including access to the latest maternal-fetal, obstetric and gynecological medical research.
The truck will also visit area clinics and Fairview Health Services hospitals in eight local communities through Aug. 31 to connect with soon-to-be parents and referring physicians.
