Located on approximately 50 acres at 13th and Nicholas Street in Omaha, the Millwork Commons neighborhood inspires and supports the work of innovators and creators — within the neighborhood and across our city.
The first bricks were laid in the Millwork Commons neighborhood in the 1880’s. The area was once a bustling economic hub, housing millworkers and furnituremakers who were the innovators of their time. As it builds on the energy and momentum of Downtown Omaha, Millwork Commons is set to become one of the city’s most vibrant neighborhoods, blending the authenticity of the city’s industrial roots with the vitality of today’s innovators and creators.
Please follow traffic signs and volunteer directions when you arrive at Millwork Commons.
The safety of everyone attending Food Truck World Tour is our number one priority. Due to an increase in COVID-19 cases in Douglas County, the following protocols will be in place:
All guests must remain in their vehicle at all times
It is requested that guests wear masks when checking-in and receiving their meals, or when vehicle windows are down within close proximity to event staff and volunteers
All food will be pre-prepared and placed in eco-friendly to-go packaging and handed to guests directly
All event staff and volunteers will be wearing face masks and maintaining social distancing
WHEN YOU ARRIVE
You can pick your meals up at anytime between 2 p.m. and 6 p.m.
When you arrive at Millwork Commons, follow directions from volunteers to make your way to check-in. Remember, due to COVID-19, you must stay in your vehicle at all times.
At check-in, provide the names of all the individuals for which you are picking up food. Each ticket comes with one meal bag. If you have children or additional people in your car who do not have tickets, that is ok! You only need tickets for the number of meal bags you are picking up.
After you check-in, follow volunteer instructions and drive around to the food pick-up tables. A volunteer will bring you your food bags.
Next step: enjoy the amazing food samplings from our incredible Food Trucks!

We invite you to help us reach our Gifts from the Heart goal this year by making a donation online at immigrantlc.org/GiftsfromtheHeart. Event staff and volunteers will also be collecting donations at the event, and providing envelopes at check-in. Thank you so much for your continued support of Immigrant Legal Center.
