Food Trucks Round Up to Raise Funds and Awareness for Project Catch

Raleigh, NC – RDU Mobile Food Association (RDUMFA) food truck members will be at The Salvation Army of Wake County’s Judy D. Zelnak CENTER of HOPE location (1863 Capital Boulevard in Raleigh) on Monday, May 9th, 2016 from 5 to 7 pm. The event will be a dinner food truck rodeo, where a percentage of sales and tips earned will be donated to Salvation Army program, Project CATCH (Community Action Targeting Children who are Homeless). In addition to selling to the public, RDUMFA estimates food trucks will serve over 300 free meals to those benefiting from Project CATCH and the Salvation Army. Project CATCH is a unique program to the Raleigh area, which provides services and advocates for children experiencing homelessness.

Gus Megaloudis, owner of Gussy’s and RDUMFA Board Member, encourages others to bring a canned good. After he toured the Salvation Army’s facility, he identified the pantry’s need. Rodeo guests can also tour the facility.

The food trucks that will be here are:

  • Baozi: a food truck that specializes in steamed buns (called baos) served with meat and vegetables.
  • Chick-N-Que: a food truck that specializes in Eastern Carolina-style Chicken BBQ
  • Cocoa Forte: a food truck that serves chocolate dipped cheesecakes.
  • Gussy’s: a food truck that serves Greek food, like gyros with chicken falafel, or lamb, dolmades and baklava.
  • Philly’s: a food truck that serves Philly Cheesesteaks.
  • Sweet Traditions: a food truck serving cupcakes and other desserts.
  • Will & Pop’s: a food truck serving burgers and fries.
