Food Trucks in the Foothills is a newly formed organization helping to serve local nonprofits and community charities. “It’s about a group of people trying to make a living, [who] at the same time want to give back and raise awareness for charities in El Dorado County,” says Michael Van Ry, owner of the All Star Que truck, who takes on the administrative role of meeting with local charities and securing venues. Once a month, All Star Que, Morty’s, Cluck and Chuck, and Gryo Stop team up to provide their fans with delicious grub, donating 10 percent of all sales to a local cause. While Food Trucks in the Foothills has plans to benefit a variety of nonprofits, so far efforts have been focused on military veterans. “I am a veteran. The owner of Cluck and Chuck is a combat disabled veteran from Afghanistan and this business is how he raises his family,” says Van Ry. The Military Family Support Group received proceeds in November and the County Veterans Council and the Veteran Memorial proposed in El Dorado Hills are slated to be beneficiaries this spring.
