What’s better than building community through food? Solving poverty while you do it! Join us on August 8 for Solid Ground’s Food Truck Taste Off presented by Verizon.
Our 3rd annual Food Truck Taste Off offers our friends and supporters a casual evening of food, fun and friendly competition – all while raising funds to solve poverty! The event brings together some of Seattle’s favorite food trucks and vendors for your vote, while you enjoy live music, games and a beer garden. This year, we’re partnering with Seattle’s Mobile Food Rodeo to make this event even larger and livelier than before!
The Taste Off will be held in Hangar 30, against the beautiful backdrop of Magnuson Park, which is also home to Solid Ground’s Sand Point Housing Campus. The campus provides housing to nearly 500 people (including almost 250 children and youth) with onsite support services for residents on their journey from homelessness to stability. Hundreds of local community members and Solid Ground supporters will join us to sample an incredible range of signature dishes, from gyros to grilled cheese and sushi burritos to barbecue. With nine planned food vendors, several of whom provide vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options, and five breweries in attendance, there’s sure to be something for everybody to enjoy over the course of the evening.
Food vendors include: 12Spice Kitchen; Alexandra’s Macarons; Auntie’s Family Kitchen Food Truck; Frelard Tamales; Grilled Cheese Experience; Langostino Sushi Burrito; Kathmandu Momocha; Pecos Pit Bar-B-Que; Pilgrim Coffee; SUSU Rolled Ice Cream; Tabassum; Theo’s Gyros; and Wow Wow Hawaiian Lemonades.
Breweries include: Elysian Brewing Company; Georgetown Brewing Company; Optimism Brewing Company; Redhook; and Seapine Brewing Company.
The event will also include informational booths to learn more about Solid Ground and other key partners focused on improving lives in the area. All proceeds from the event support Solid Ground’s work to meet basic needs, nurture success and spread change.
Attendees will have the chance to sample specialty dishes from all the food trucks and then vote for their favorite – and the winning truck receives our custom made “To-Go-Cup” trophy, bragging rights, and a $500 cash prize!
Putting an event like this together is no easy feat, and like our work in solving poverty – we can’t do it alone!
