(OKLAHOMA CITY) — Aug 25, 2017 – The Wheeler District is once again hosting the Food For All food truck on Aug. 29 with net proceeds from the event benefitting the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma. The truck will be at the Wheeler Ferris Wheel from 5 to 8 p.m.
“The Food For All food truck is a great way to enjoy delicious food and help raise money for the Regional Food Bank,” said Ashley Terry with the Wheeler District.
This is the third Food For All food truck fundraising event the district has hosted to benefit the Regional Food Bank. Each event features local chefs who donate their time and expertise to create culinary treats with ingredients donated by Whole Foods Market. Featured chefs for Aug. 29 will be Kamala and Barb of Kam’s Kookery.
“Wheeler District and the Food for All food truck are valued partners in the fight against hunger in Oklahoma,” said Katie Fitzgerald, chief executive officer of the Regional Food Bank. “Thanks to their support and that of Whole Foods Market, every dollar raised will provide the equivalent of five meals to the one in six Oklahomans with inconsistent access to food.”
Together, we can solve childhood hunger. Through Sept. 30, every donation to the Food for Kids program will be matched up to $150,000, thanks to the generosity of the Masonic Fraternity of Oklahoma, Benvenuti Ristorante, David Gorham and two anonymous donors. To make a donation, visit foodforkids.us or call 405-972-1111.
