We’re playing a little bit of catch up here recapping the season, but we hope you’ll bear with us! In the meantime, we just couldn’t wait to share the amazing event we were lucky to be a part of this weekend.
On Sunday, October 6, 2013, What the Truck?! partnered with the Bissell Centre for a special Truck Stop. Our desire was to try and replicate the spirit of our other pop-up events, but of course, this one had one major twist: the food was free.
Six trucks served over 900 meals to underprivileged individuals that day. We can’t tell you how rewarding it was to see people enjoying themselves.
We always knew we were lucky to have such a great food truck community in Edmonton, but the participating vendors that day took that statement to another level. Thanks to The Act Out & About, Bully, Lemon Grass Grill, Little Village, The Local Omnivore, and Sailin’ On for your generous contributions.
It was also a wonderful experience working with the staff from the Bissell Centre. The agency has had a rough month, experiencing a fire in their Thrift Shoppe, but the staff were more than accommodating to help us put on this event on their day off! Thanks to the staff and volunteers for their hard work.
