On World Food Day, October 16th, New York City’s food trucks are donating 5 percent of their sales to help international humanitarian organization Concern Worldwide fight extreme hunger in the world’s poorest countries.
Participating trucks include: Gorilla Cheese NYC – @gcnyc1, Chinese Mirch – @ChineseMirch, Milk Truck – @milktrucknyc, Toum – @ToumNYC, Valduccis – @valduccis, Phil’s Steaks – @PhilSteaks, Snap – @SnapTruck, Mexico Blvd – @MexicoBlvd, Red Hook Lobster – @Redhooklobster, Nuchas – @NuchasNYC, Souvlaki GR – @SouvlakiTruck, and Shorty’s on Wheels – @ShortysNYC.
“We are deeply grateful to the New York City Food Truck Association and all of the trucks who are coming out on World Food Day to help us make hunger history,” said Sarah de Tournemire, Development Director at Concern Worldwide US. “Each and every meal purchased tomorrow at the participating trucks will be so much more than just a meal—it will help reach more malnourished children who are in need of treatment and help more communities break the cycle of hunger.”
To find specific location information, follow the participating trucks on Twitter. Updates will also be available throughout the day on Twitter @Concern and @nycfoodtruck.
Five percent of participating food trucks’ sales on World Food Day, October 16th, will specifically support the Concern for Hunger campaign, a movement against extreme hunger that Concern launched last month with award-winning actress Toni Collette. All donations to Concern for Hunger support Concern’s programs that treat and prevent malnutrition in the world’s poorest countries.
