In the spirit of the Thanksgiving season, Chapel Hill Community Arts & Culture will be hosting its second annual Thanks + Giving Food Truck Rodeo on Nov. 13.
To be located at 1714 Legion Road, the event will feature a variety of different food trucks and local non-profits.
Melissa Bartoletta, marketing and communications coordinator for Chapel Hill Community Arts & Culture, said the two nonprofits that will help run the service drive are the Inter-Faith Council for Social Service and PORCH Chapel Hill-Carrboro.
“We’re asking attendees to come with an item for the service drive,” Bartoletta said. “PORCH will be there collecting drive food items and Interfaith Council for Social Service will also be one of the anchor nonprofits, collecting toiletry items.”
Alison Bender, the special events coordinator for Chapel Hill Community Arts & Culture, said there will be a total of about 20 nonprofit organizations and 10 food trucks present at the event.
“We’re trying to make sure there is a range of cuisines,” Bartoletta said.
Bartoletta said that, so far, they are expecting trucks including Cilantro Mexican Cuisine, artisan donut truck Drizzle D’s, Caribbean food truck Mia’s Kitchen and the Thai-food-selling Drunkenfoodtruck at the event.
She added that all of the food trucks will be using compostable serving ware because Chapel Hill Community Arts & Culture is trying to reduce waste from their events.
Every nonprofit organization present will be providing some kind of engaging activity for guests, according to Bartoletta.
