Food truck extravaganza benefits soup kitchen fund
Food trucks and vendors will gather at Cranbrook Hyundai on August 24 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. to serve up some of the best street grub the Kootenays has to offer, all in the name of charity.
The event, Hyundai for Hunger, will benefit the Salvation Army Soup Kitchen Endowment Fund, held by the Cranbrook and District Community Foundation.
“Cranbrook Hyundai is passionate about community and committed to making a local impact right here at home,” says Shane Berry, Financial Services Manager at Cranbrook Hyundai. “This charity event is a fun way for the community to come together, enjoy some great local street food for lunch or dinner, and raise funds for a cause that helps to address hunger for men, women and children in Cranbrook.”
Funds will be raised through general public donations made on location. Participating food vendors will also donate a percentage of food sales or make a lump sum donation, which will be matched by Cranbrook Hyundai up to $1,000.
“We thank Cranbrook Hyundai for stepping up for a cause they are passionate about and bringing the community together to raise both funds and awareness around it,” says Riley Wilcox, Executive Director of the Cranbrook and District Community Foundation. “Every time an individual or company incorporates philanthropy into their everyday business we, as a larger community, move together towards a more vital and healthy Cranbrook. There is a ripple effect. There is positive energy and there is a reason for a collective community smile.”

- Crumbs Cakery & Café
- The Chopstick Truck
- Happy Cow Ice Cream Truck
- Wicked Weenies
