Get Ready: Lubbock’s First-Ever Food Truck Battle Is Coming
This month is the one-year anniversary of the Food Truck for a Cause and they are doing something big for it.
If you love food trucks, every month there is an event for you. It is called Food Truck for a Cause and it brings a bunch of food trucks together all day for you to enjoy, but it also helps a good cause.
It was started up as a way to enjoy food, get the food trucks together and also help nonprofit groups in Lubbock. They've raised some amazing money for these causes and they're continuing to do big things back in November 2021.
How does it work? All you have to do is show up and eat the food. Then, they take a percentage of the money raised and give it back to that month's nonprofit. It always happens on the last Sunday of every month at the Aldersgate Church, located at 10306 Indiana Ave. The event happens all day long. They have some food trucks there for lunch and others for dinner. It all kicks off at 11 a.m. and goes until 8 p.m.
The event also has a lot of other fun things to offer like games, live music, face painting and more.
Now one year later it is still going strong. So to honor it they are doing a food truck battle. This will be held on Sunday, November 27th, 2022 from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. They are calling it "Lubbock's First Annual Ditch the Leftovers Food Truck Battle."
They will have a couple of judges, including me, try different food from local food trucks to find the winner. They will also have food trucks for everyone to enjoy, craft beer, vendors, live music, games and more. People’s choice food truck will win $500 cash prize.
This is welcome to anyone and the community, even our four-legged friends.
