Score free mac and cheese from Stouffer's tomorrow

By Rheanna O'Neil Bellomo

Swap your soggy salad (yes, we all know that’s your go-to lunch) for free mac and cheese tomorrow in the Upper West Side. The Stouffer’s truck will park on Columbus Ave between 75th and 76th Streets from noon­–3pm to dole out cups of comfort food with New York-themed mix-ins like bacon, corned beef and mustard. Get in line, grab your free hump-day pick-me-up and then meet New York restaurateur and Food Network toque Donatella Arpaia (Kefi) in between huge spoonfuls of gooey deliciousness.

Why so much cheese? The electric red kitchen-on-wheels is promoting Stouffer’s new Mac Cups—microwaveable cheesy treats in classic, cheddar-bacon, and cheeseburger flavors. After its pit-stop in Gotham, the Mac Truck will travel to other cities across the country to pair quintessential city eats with their much-loved macaroni. The road-trippin’ truck has already hit Cincinnati, where bowls of cheesy mac were smothered in sweet and savory chili while Chicago’s Mac Hack combined chi-town’s meaty Italian sandwich (roast beef, peppers, onions) with cheesy penne.

Can’t make it to the UWS on your lunch hour? Make a beeline for Macbar or S’Mac.
