Saturday Night Foodies, a popular food and restaurant review blog, in conjunction with 19 gourmet food trucks and other leading food bloggers, will host a special food truck event Wednesday, Nov. 17, from 4:30 to 9:30 p.m., in the
Verizon Wireless Amphitheater parking lot (8808 Irvine Center Drive, Irvine, CA). The tailgating-type event is designed to add momentum to the ongoing two week mobile food drive taking place through Nov. 20, for Drive Out Hunger, the county’s first mobile food drive, benefiting Second Harvest Food Bank. The special Drive Out Hunger event will leverage OC DinDin-A-GoGo, a weekly gourmet food truck event managed by the Tropical Shave Ice Truck, that usually rotates eight different gourmet food trucks each week, but this time will have 19 trucks in its lineup. Attendees are encouraged to bring folding tables, chairs and blankets.
Celebrities helping to bring awareness to the hunger crisis in Orange County will be on hand to take pictures and sign autographs for a donation of 10 non-perishable canned or dry good items, per person. There will also be a silent auction, and participants will have the opportunity to bid on Lakers and Lady Gaga tickets, vacations, and autographed art, to name just a few. Event admission and parking are free.
