Keva Andrews doesn’t cook dinner for her family on Wednesdays anymore.

For the last month, Andrews, a 45-year-old hospital billing specialist, has been buying dinner from one of the food trucks stationed around the perimeter of an Arbutus Volunteer Fire Department parking lot.

She starts at the Greek on the Street truck, where she gets five orders of lamb chops for herself, her mother, daughter, brother and nephew. The family then circles around the other trucks for more dishes and desserts.

“This is definitely nice,” she said.

Andrews was among the customers at a recent “Food Truck Wednesdays,” a weekly event organized by Crofton-based H2 Markets, during a time of growing visibility and popularity for food trucks.

Dave Pulford, president of the Maryland Mobile Food Vending Association, said membership has nearly tripled, to about 60 trucks, in the last three years. Television shows such as “The Great Food Truck Race” on Food Network, and the movie “Chef,” have boosted popularity.
