Volunteers needed for the food truck rally Friday, April 13

Friday April 13,  5 – 9pm

What is the food truck rally?  The Boise Weekly summed it up best!

Food trucks have become an integral part of American food culture, providing cheap, tasty eats. They're also a source of creativity, offering new takes on classics. Now that the trend has finally parked itself in Idaho, the Food Truck Rally has become a monthly celebration of the street food scene in the Treasure Valley.

Because they're mobile, sometimes it can be hard to find the food truck you're looking for, but the Food Truck Rally has changed that, allowing the navigationally challenged to enjoy Boise's street food without having to decipher a map or consult a smartphone. If you haven't tried some of these mobile meal merchants, the Rally is your best bet.

Although these vendors are often genre-bending and category-defying, they all provide comfort food that will stick to your ribs and warm you up as the weather gets colder. You can also warm your soul since this month's rally is located at—and benefits—the MK Nature Center.

Volunteers are needed! Come help out and have some fun.

Sign up here for a shift and have time to enjoy the rally too!
