25 of LA’s food trucks raised over $7,000 on Saturday (23rd) for The Red Cross’ Haiti Relief operations. Organized by the Southern California Mobile Food Vendors Association, the trucks and patrons lined the streets from 11 a.m to 4 p.m. The turnout was great, with conservative estimates of at least 5,000 people showing up to buy some street food for a good cause. The organizers are still counting the cash, but so far, it is over $7,000.
