Efforts are still under way to raise funds for rebuilding the McKinley Park playground, which was torched in a suspected arson fire July 28, and a food truck even scheduled for Sunday gives you the chance to grab some grub while supporting the rebuilding efforts.
The free event hosted by SactoMoFo will be held at Sutter’s Landing Park at 28th and B streets from noon – 4 p.m. Sunday, and at least 14 food trucks are scheduled to attend.
Vendors include Drewski’s Hot Rod Kitchen, Miz Shirley Marie’s, Simply Southern Foods, Brickoven Pizza, Annie’s Sno Biz Hawaiian Shave Ice, Smoothie Patrol, OMG Burger, Om Karmabile, Volks Waffle California, Swabbies, Tacos Chavinda, Dave’s Dawgs, Coast to Coast Sandwiches and Mama Kim on the Go.
To date, more than $100,000 has been raised for tha playground’s rebuilding, including cash donations, in-kind donations and commitments, according to a press release.
Event coordinator Steve Swindel said proceeds from sales at each food truck will be donated to rebuilding McKinley Park’s playground, as well as a portion of the sales from a beer and wine garden that will be on-site.
“Basically, the food trucks are giving us a cut of what they make,” he said. “The event is absolutely free to get it.”
