COLUMBUS, Ohio, June 2017 – UCT kicked off its Operation Feed campaign for the Mid-Ohio Foodbank with its 3rd annual food truck rally! Sunny skies brought out Columbus foodies for great eats from eight different area food trucks, music, raffle prizes, and the chance to help the local community.
Participating food trucks included Pitabilities, The Blue Chew, Paddy Wagon, Tortilla, Schmidt’s Sausage Truck, Ninja Bowl, OH! Burgers, Kona Ice and the CD 102.5 ice cream truck. The food trucks donated 10 percent of their proceeds to the Operation Feed campaign.
For over 35 years Operation Feed has provided meals for families in need by distributing millions of pounds of food to food pantries, soup kitchens, and emergency shelters across 20 Ohio counties. UCT has supported the campaign and the Mid-Ohio Foodbank for decades and has helped provide thousands of meals for hungry Central Ohioans.
UCT’s campaign goal for 2017 is to raise $6,440 or 25,760 meals. Totals raised after the food truck event are already at over $5,200, and the campaign will continue through July.
