OUR VOLUNTEERS NEVER GO HOME HUNGRY
What the Truck?! volunteers lend a hand to keep our sites clean and tidy. We strive to leave every location we utilize as clean, (OR cleaner), than we found it.
Our Northlands event on May 28 & 29, 2016 had over 12K people tell us they were interested in coming for dinner via Facebook. Yikes! That’s a LOT of dirty dishes. Imagine each person eating just one serving of food and drinking just one beverage, and you can get an idea of how much garbage is produced. And let’s be real; who only eats ONE serving when they attend a What the Truck?! event! 😉
Our volunteers work extremely hard picking up the trash, and packing up the disposables. It is certainly not glamorous, but so necessary to make the event safe & pleasant for all in attendance.
Why would anyone pick up garbage for 4 hours?
All of our volunteers are #yegfoodtruck supporters, and each volunteer has their own favorite truck. Our volunteers are thanked by the food trucks each shift that they help out. Thanked with the best food on earth — #yegfoodtruck food!!
The trucks DONATE meals for our volunteers; as their appreciation for the hard work they do on their behalf.
