Cheering on the Portland Timbers can make a person work up quite an appetite. To keep fans fed, the team is launching a new promotion for fans and food cart owners.
On Friday, the Portland Timbers Food Cart Alliance was launched, combining two things Portlanders love, the Timbers and food carts.
Through the program, some food carts will take over a concession stand at Jeld-Wen Field. Fans will vote in an online poll to decide which cart will be featured at the stand. The program also uses social media, by featuring the carts on the Timbers' website and a Facebook page.
Some cart menus may feature items with a Timbers theme. Members of the team's Axe Society – the Timbers fan club – will be offered discounts at the alliance food carts.
Food carts are expected to be featured at Jeld-Wen Field starting in August.
