Pizza, curry and cupcakes – whether your tastes are spicy or sweet there were no shortage of options at the first annual YCAN Food Truck Fest.
The parking lot of St. Johns Episcopal Church was filled with foodies in search of something good to eat.
“I’ve participated in many food truck fests and they’re pretty fun and generate a lot of buzz in the community and there’s not really something like that happening in Naperville, so we thought it would be a good idea,” explained Anne Fitzgibbons, Co-Chair for the YCAN Food Truck Fest.
The Food Truck Fest was a chance for YCAN, or the Young Community Action Network, to raise awareness and money for Loaves and Fishes Community Services. The group of young professionals aims to make a difference in Naperville, while having fun and building friendships.
“We started it basically because if you go over to Loaves and Fishes to volunteer there you’ll notice the median age is a little older, let’s just say its probably about 60 years of age so we’re trying to get young professionals in the community, involved in the community,” said Brian Damhoff
The fest was free to attend, with participants encouraged to bring a donation of $5 or a non-perishable food item.
In the end, YCAN was able to raise just under $2,000 for Loaves and Fishes Community Services.
