Forest Hill United Church is hosting a Food Truck Frenzy every Monday until the end of August, with this year being the fifth one in a row for this fundraising event.
Four food trucks are featured every Monday from 4:30 to 8 p.m., with new ones setting up the following week. In addition, free events are held for the public. This coming Monday there will be people in attendance helping parents register their children for child identification in case they ever go missing. Two weeks ago there was an antique car show, and on July 1 there will be a fun fair for children.
These events and food trucks are a fundraiser for the church which is located at 121 Westmount Rd. E. in Kitchener. The food trucks owners donate 10 per cent of their earnings to the church each week which is used to support local outreach initiatives. These include events happening at Chandler Mowat Community Centre for low-income individuals, the breakfast program at Forest Hill Public School, House of Friendship and more.
Food Truck Frenzy goes every Monday rain or shine.
