A Sunday afternoon food truck event drew thousands to the Elk Grove Regional Park to enjoy food and benefit a local charitable group.
Organized by two Elk Grove City Council members and three Cosumnes Community Services District directors, the five hour event is said to have drawn over 4,000 people who enjoyed a wide variety of food from 15 vendors.
Aside from being one of the largest regional food truck events, 10 percent of the proceeds from the vendors as well as proceeds from the beer and wine tent are being donated to the Elk Grove Police Activities League. Although the final tally will not be determined for several days, organizers expect to raise several thousand dollars for the league.
"This surpassed everything we anticipated," organizer and Elk Grove City Council member Steve Detrick said. "It is more than just a food event, it is a community event."
