Ice cream sandwiches from the Coolhaus truck

Who can resist a free meal? Especially when it involves the Lobsta Truck, ice cream sandwiches from Coolhaus and other dishes from popular food trucks.

BBC America will host a free food truck event on Tuesday in Santa Monica to celebrate its new cooking adventure series "No Kitchen Required." From 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. diners can get free food, drinks, desserts and even free T-shirts. The event is first come, first served. So its Facebook page suggests not being late.

There will also be a screening of "No Kitchen Required" at 7 p.m. The new show involves three chefs in exotic and remote locations who must work with the local community to cook meals inspired by their surroundings. The show premieres April 3 at 10 p.m. Pacific time on BBC America.

RSVPing for the food truck event requires liking the "No Kitchen Required" Facebook page.

2612 Main St., Santa Monica (corner of Main Street and Ocean Park).
