Do you love your food trucks? Well you’ll love them even more now… If you're planning on buying lunch in the CBD next week, you can make a difference to Melbourne’s most vulnerable families.
Three of Melbourne’s best are supporting Wesley Mission Victoria’s Food For Families appeal by pledging a proportion of sales to the flagship appeal. That’s right, now you can give a little and change a lot - simply by buying some trucking good food! #Winning!
Each day from 23-27 November a different Melbourne food truck regular will be setting up shop at a location in the CBD and surrounds from 12-2pm, and donating $1 from every meal purchased to the appeal. Just keep an eye out for Happy Camper, Taco Truck or Beatbox Kitchen!
Now in its 24th year, the appeal helps Melbourne families in crisis by providing nutritional non-perishable food and household essentials at Christmas, and throughout the rest of the year. Often when families are struggling to pay rent and other costs, eating properly is the first thing to slip.
Donations from the food trucks will also go towards purchasing fresh and frozen foods, including fruit and vegetables, to supplement the non-perishable donations they often receive over the Christmas period. So grab your mates and settle in for a food truck feast for a worthy cause.
Food For Families Appeal food truck schedule:
Monday 23rd Happy Camper at Flagstaff Gardens
Tuesday 24th Taco Truck at NGV
Wednesday 25th Happy Camper at Flagstaff Gardens
Thursday 26th Taco Truck at Testing Grounds
Friday 27th Beatbox Kitchen at Testing Grounds
All vendors will trade from 12-2pm each day.
Should you miss out on the food truck fun, there are other ways you can show your support! To provide essential food for those in need this Christmas and throughout 2016, Wesley Mission Victoria is calling on Melbourne’s businesses, schools and community groups to support the appeal by registering to host a non-perishable donation box. You can sign up to receive a delivery of a donation box by registering here.
