June 30, 2014 (SEATTLE) – What’s better than spending a Sunday afternoon enjoying delicious food from Seattle’s favorite food trucks? Knowing that you’re helping feed hungry families at the same time! Worldwide, hunger kills more people every year than AIDS, malaria, and tuberculosis combined, but with your help, World Concern makes a lasting impact in the lives of the poor in Africa, Southeast Asia, and Haiti.
On Sunday, August 31 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., 10 of Seattle’s top food trucks will rally to fight global hunger at World Concern’s 3rd annual Mobile Food Fight for Hunger in Shoreline.
The toughest part will be saving your appetite to taste the offerings of as many food trucks as possible. From Where Ya At Matt’s nationally acclaimed New Orleans-style creole, to delicious sweet frybread from Off the Rez, the event draws hundreds of Northwest foodies. Try a fresh take on old favorites from local food trucks like Cheese Wizards, Crisp Creperie, and Fish Basket, and satisfy your sweet tooth with a sugary delight from Street Treats or Street Donuts.
A portion of the funds raised from the Mobile Food Fight for Hunger will help provide sustainable solutions for global hunger in some of the poorest countries in the world. Off the Rez owner Cecilia Rikard shares her excitement for the event. “We love World Concern’s Mobile Food Fight for Hunger! It allows us to bring our food to a fantastic crowd while helping to bring attention to and contributing to the fight against global hunger,” she said. “We are thrilled to be invited back year after year.
