An exciting variety of some of the most popular local food trucks will be offering their gourmet specialties on Saturday, March 11, at the R.H. Johnson Rec Center.
The fundraiser is the first for the young nonprofit Northwest Valley Connect and, in addition to the food trucks, will feature wineries and breweries, a car show, live music and DJ, silent auction, raffle and a special children’s booth for tire painting staffed by artists from WHAM. The event begins at 1:00 and runs until 6:00.
The food truck Burgers Amore will be on hand serving up a variety of specialty burgers to satisfy any burger-lover’s appetite. Also in attendance that day is the food truck White Eyes Fry Bread, a unique and one-of- a-kind gourmet specialty that is a crowd favorite wherever it goes. The ever popular Mighty Moo Ice Cream will be serving up their treats as will True BBQ, Memo’s Restaurant and the food truck Lemongrass Shack offering a scrumptious selection of Cambodian delicacies. “We have a nice assortment of trucks that should meet everyone’s hunger expectations,” said Arky Muscato, ‘Motors and Meals’ committee member in charge of food trucks for the Fundraiser. Northwest Valley Connect recently marked its second full year of operation, responding to more than 3,650 calls to its call center where trained volunteers “connect” its clients to an appropriate transportation provider. In some cases, the agency uses its own volunteer drivers to make the trips. “The growth in calls has been explosive,” said Kathy Chandler, Executive Director and Mobility Manager. “Transportation remains the number one challenge for those well enough to live at home but who no longer can drive. These folks need transportation not only to doctors’ appointments but also to shopping and the all-important social activities.”
