On Monday afternoon, September 2, local Las Vegas residents and visitors enjoying an afternoon out at Sunset Park got an unexpected treat with the arrival of a food truck offering FREE box lunches to one and all.

However, this was not the usual food truck. This food truck was part of a foodimobile tour making stops at family-friendly destinations across the country to help promote Sony Pictures Animation’s highly anticipated animated feature Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 that hits theaters everywhere on September 27. As a whole new way for moviegoers to meet the film's delicious co-stars, the healthy and tasty lunch-sized portions of food, served in lunch boxes features foodimal characters including tacodiles, hippotatomuses, fruit cockatiels, subwhales, watermelophants, Barry (he’s a strawberry), pickles, carrots, and celery. Visitors also walked away with recipe cards explaining how to make foodimals at home.
