Diamond Bar High School will host seven top gourmet food trucks in a fundraising festival on Saturday, Feb. 9th.
The food truck festival will go from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the front parking lot of Diamond Bar High School, located at 21400 E. Pathfinder Road in Diamond Bar.
The area’s most popular trucks are scheduled for the event and include the Lime Truck, winner of the Food Network’s “Great Food Truck Race – Season 2” and My Delight Cupcakes, recognized as LA’s Cupcake Challenge winners. The other food fusion trucks include Jogasaki Sushi Burritos, Bool Korean BBQ, KomodoTruck, the Trailer Park Truck, and Slammin’ Sliders. A percentage of sales from each truck will be donated to benefit the event.
"The Diamond Bar High School FOOD FEST FUNDRAISER is always a terrific day for us," said Tom Miller, owner and operator of Slammin' Sliders Truck. "The community really comes out to support these food truck events and we’re looking forward to being back in Diamond Bar."
The planned FOOD TRUCK FEST marks a return to Diamond Bar High School after the December event was cancelled because it was scheduled on the same day as student Danika Tibayan's funeral. The Magnificent 7, the Diamond Bar High School parent organization representing the diverse community of students at the high school, will benefit collectively from the FOOD TRUCK FEST Fundraiser and is hoping for another large and well-supported community event.
“With the unfortunate events that caused the cancellation of our December Food Fest, the DBHS Magnificent 7 team is looking forward to an even bigger and better FOOD TRUCK Fundraiser on February 9th,” said Clark Rucker, president of the Magnificent 7. “Some of our favorite trucks will be returning and we'll have a few new surprises. We hope that everyone enjoys all that is planned.”
The admission donation for the festival is $2.00 for adults, $1.00 for students, and children under 5 years old are admitted free. No outside food or beverages (or pets) are permitted. For more information visit www.dbhs.wvusd.k12.ca.us and follow the event on twitter @DBHSFoodFest.
