Are You Hungry to Help? Check out the Jax Truckies Food Truck Championship!

Do you enjoy food? Do you want to help fight domestic hunger in North Florida? You can be part of the solution just by feeding your own appetite.

Join the Jacksonville community June 15 from 6 – 10 p.m. for the second annual Jax Truckies Food Truck Championship presented by Intuition Ale Works. The event will take place at Burrito Gallery with over 20 food trucks participating in this year’s competition – including last year’s overall champion, On the Fly. The competition is free to the public, but donations are welcome as a portion of the proceeds will benefit Second Harvest North Florida.

“Second Harvest North Florida wants to thank Jax Truckies for once again raising awareness and funds to help solve hunger in our community,” said Bruce Ganger, Second Harvest food bank executive director.  “What better group and event to help feed people than all of you who appreciate food so much!  For every dollar we receive we can feed seven children and their families, thanks to your efforts.”

With a variety of unique foods and low prices, Jacksonville’s food truck industry has grown tremendously over the last two years after fighting restrictions against where these trucks could operate. Your participation in just this event can help determine the People’s Choice award, feed the hungry of North Florida and fuel the local economy. Who knew eating good food could yield such a powerful result?
