Today brings word of two different food truck charity events in the next week:
The first one, a "Secret Pop Up Party for LA Street Food Fest fans" from the organizers of the first Street Food Festival downtown and a subsequent one in the Rose Bowl, will be held tomorrow (Friday November 12th) evening from 6 - 9 pm at the Heritage Square Museum, east of Dodger Stadium and just East of the 110 Freeway. The event is free but limited to only 300 ticketholders who sign up for tickets here. The required password is foodfestlove. The event is a benefit for Toys for Tots so all attendees will need to bring a new unwrapped toy to gain admission and as the organizers note, if you bring a plus one, two people equals two toys. Both the Hungry Nomad and the Manila Machine will be there selling food. Its for the children! Remember you need to get a free ticket online to go, you need toy(s) and the food isn't free so come prepared.
The second upcoming event is Trucking Through the Holidays, a food truck festival next Thursday evening November 18th from 6 - 9 pm at Jaxon Home in the Helms Bakery Complex (where the Culver City Father's Office is located). This event is also free and requires no tickets to attend. Each of the participating food trucks will be donating a portion of their proceeds to the Los Angeles Regional Foodbank. They will also be accepting canned food and cash donations directly to the Foodbank, which is facing unprecedented demand for its food from unemployed and underemployed families.
Both of these events provide opportunities for fans of food trucks to help those in need while enjoying some of the best food on four wheels. Please consider attending these events and helping those in need.
