Food Truck Throw-Down Market Fundraiser

In our previous Sowing Growth Throw-downs (2017-2019), there were 8-12 Food Trucks feeding 2000-4000 people in attendance. When we resume this fundraiser, in the McCormick Park parking lot, in 2023, we are hoping for another terrific turnout. That means we need lots of volunteer help to work in 2-hour shifts anytime from 3:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.

Volunteers are needed for:

  1. Set up from 3pm to 5pm. This involves moving picnic tables, setting up several tent canopies, tables and chairs for information booths, the band, and the beverage tent; assisting the food trucks to park as they arrive; and other tasks as needed and no matter the weather.
  2. Various Tasks from 5pm to 7pm. This will involve helping customers navigate their way around the venue and showing them where the recycling is, working at the information or voting booths, bussing tables and keeping picnic areas clean and trash free by emptying trash cans, and other tasks as needed, possibly some traffic management. When your replacement arrives, show them how to do your tasks and suggest what else may help keep things running smoothly.
  3. Various Tasks from 7pm to 9pm. This will involve helping customers navigate their way around the venue and showing them where the recycling is, working at the information or voting booths, bussing tables and keeping picnic areas clean and trash free by emptying trash cans, and other tasks as needed, possibly some traffic management.
  4. Cleanup from 9pm to 10:30pm. Taking down the canopy tents, tables, chairs, cleaning up trash, moving the picnic tables back to the parking lot, and other tasks as needed.

Please sign up for the shifts and time slots that work for you. Be sure to give yourself some time to enjoy your friends, great food and live music!

NOTE: High school students applying for volunteer positions to earn community service credit will be given a weekly report documenting volunteer service time.
