WATERFORD, MI – Fans of street food will have something to look forward to when a band of local food truck companies will join to feed mobile food fans and help raise funds for a worthy cause.

The Waterford/Pontiac Elks Lodge No. 810, in conjunction with the Michigan Mobile Food Vendor Association, will host a gathering of food trucks to help benefit the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life. The event, which is scheduled from 4-9 p.m. Wednesday, July 11, on the Elks lodge’s 18-acre property at 2100 Scott Lake Road in Waterford, hopes to draw many patrons.

With a portion of the proceeds from the event going to Relay For Life, James Mastrangel, owner of Jacques Tacos and vice president of the Michigan Mobile Food Vendor’s Association, is hoping for a large turnout all for a great cause.

“It’s always great to roll off the pavement and onto the grass and it’s going toward a worthy cause,” said Mastrangel.

Food trucks featured during Wednesday’s rally include:

  • Big R BBQ
  • Concrete Cuisine
  • Franks Anatra
  • Downtown Trailer of Flavor
  • Dago Joes
  • Jacques’ Tacos
  • Treat Dreams

In addition to the food truck rally a beer tent will also be available. Up In The Air Disc Golf will be providing disc golf demonstrations on a 9-hole course set up on the Elks Lodge grounds and live music will be provided by local band, The Vintage. The Waterford Elks Lodge is located at 2100 Scott Lake Road, Waterford Township.
