On Saturday, September 19th, United Way of Quinte, in conjunction with the City of Quinte West, is bringing a new and exciting event to Centennial Park: Food Trucks United presented by Hanon Systems Canada Inc. The inaugural event is a fundraiser for United Way of Quinte and will help mark the start of the organization’s annual fundraising campaign. This year, United Way of Quinte hopes to raise $2.1 million in support of more than 100 local programs and initiatives throughout Hastings & Prince Edward Counties.
Food truck festivals have become a national sensation! One of the biggest trends in contemporary cuisine, these mini-restaurants on wheels offer a wide range of menu options. No matter what kind of food you like, how hungry you are, or how adventurous you’re feeling, there is bound to be an option at Food Trucks United that will tempt your taste buds.
“The residents and businesses in the City of Quinte West have been very supportive of United Way of Quinte over the years, and we felt it was important to bring a signature event to the community as another way to give back and say thank you,“ said Judi Gilbert, Executive Director. ““I would like to thank Hanon Systems Canada Inc. for their title sponsorship of Food Trucks United in its inaugural year. We feel strongly that this event will grow over the years and take on a life of its own.”
