Two local radio stations are planning a food truck festival for next month that will feature 22 vendors at Park Central Mall in Phoenix.
KNRJ 101.1 FM and KAJM 104.3 FM are hosting the Spring Food Truck Festival on Saturday, April 20.
Admission is free and a portion of the proceeds will go to Chicanos Por La Causa, a nonprofit Hispanic social services agency.

After visiting a Signal Mountain friend, I was coming down Taft Highway and saw a sign that read “Poppy’s Smokehouse – Southern Barbecue”. Well, you know I just had to stop in and see for myself just how Southern. It was raining and, as soon as I got inside, the bottom dropped out of the sky. I picked a good time to let the storm pass before heading back. Poppy’s was such a warm, … (click for more)

Foodies and activists joined together this past Sunday, March 10, to support the Greater Birmingham Street Food Coalition at its first annual Street Food Rally.
Among the vendors in attendance were Cantina on Wheels, Dreamcakes Bakery, Fresh Off the Bun, Melt, Shindigs Catering, Slice, Greg’s Hot Dogs, Off the Hook, Repicci’s Italian Ice and Spoonfed Grill.
The trailers, carts and trucks served up their food creations to patrons to raise support for the mobile food industry, which is currently under scrutiny as the Birmingham City Council is preparing to make its first food truck laws.
The proposed ordinance would greatly restrict street food vendors by limiting their hours of operation, prohibiting service within 230 feet of brick-and-mortar restaurants and carving out designated “zones” for them to park their trucks permanently.
This legislation is designed to keep food trucks from competing with traditional restaurants by making it nearly impossible to run a successful food service, ultimately driving them off the streets.
Guests paid $25 at the gate, allowing them seven tokens to spend on any food and beverages they desired.
An estimated 5,000 people and hundreds of dogs strolled through the parking lot of the Martin Biscuit Building, soaking up some much-needed sunshine and sampling dozens of free offerings.
Crowd favorites included fish tacos from Off the Hook, Vietnamese barbecue sandwiches from Fresh Off the Bun, wood-fired pizza from Slice, and the refreshingly cool treats from Repicci’s.
Dreamcakes sold out of 45 dozen cupcakes in less than three hours. Shindigs Catering, whose slogan is “Local Food Fast,” served crispy catfish over grits, topped with microgreens and a heavenly kimchi beurre blanc sauce. Lines of patient supporters stretched the entire length of the parking lot.
The food truck movement has exploded into cities nationwide, and Birmingham is no exception.
While the Magic City’s mobile food industry is still in its infancy, new vendors are popping up around every street corner.
One of the newest additions to the Street Food Coalition is Melt, co-owned by long-time friends Paget Pizitz and Harriet Reis.
Reis loved the idea of serving up a simple American classic with a twist, but thought it would be even better served on wheels.
She and Pizitz collaborated on the idea of a grilled cheese truck, dubbed themselves the “Two Cheesy Chicks,” and Melt was born.
They recruited Chef Joey Dickerson, the genius behind their savory comfort food, and hit the road.
Pizitz, for one, is not concerned about the proposed legislation. “Any time you introduce something new, there is going to be resistance,” she says.
Luckily, Melt does not have to face adversity alone.
The community of food trucks in Birmingham is working together towards a common goal: to have the same rights as brick-and-mortar restaurants and to continue serving meals to street food fanatics across the city.
Together, the vendors will continue to participate in events like the Street Food Rally to raise community awareness for the potential street food ban.
Grab your taste buds and hurry on over to Ramirez Intermediate School for the first Food Truck Night on Friday, March 15, from 5 to 9 p.m.
The food truck night will feature 13 food and dessert trucks including some featured on the Food Network channel.
Food trucks scheduled to be there include Rollin’ Sushi, Dogzilla, WTF Wood Burning Pizza truck, The Grilled Cheese Truck and dessert trucks Funnel Cake Frenzy and Longboards Ice Cream.
The entry fee is $3 per person and children 5 and under get in for free.
Each truck will be selling its own food.
Other activities include a kid zone, two game trucks, live music and raffles.
Ramirez Intermediate School is located at 6905 Harrison Ave., Eastvale.

Commercial Drive’s initial food lorry bending by net of internal politics - VANCOUVER, CANADA - Local businessman Dylan McCulloch didn’t comprehend he’d be held in a net of village politics when he non-stop a initial food lorry on Commercial Drive.
He and partner Ryan Johnson, with whom he co-owns a Daily Catch fishmonger on a Drive, sunk their increase and assets into a truck.

Local entrepreneur Dylan McCulloch didn’t realize he’d be caught in a net of community politics when he opened the first food truck on Commercial Drive.
He and partner Ryan Johnson, with whom he co-owns the Daily Catch fishmonger on the Drive, sunk their profits and savings into the truck.
They were issued a city permit and assigned a spot at the southeast corner of Grandview-Woodland park. They invested about $125,000 in the truck, with three deep fryers, an oven and custom paint job. They hired local chef Jeff Wilmott to whip up beer-battered fish and chips, fish cake sliders and calamari po’ boy sandwiches.
On Saturday, sales at the truck topped $2,500.
But despite brisk business over the past month, opposition from some residents and businesses has put the future of the truck — and other proposed food trucks on the Drive — in doubt.
“The majority of people love it. It’s just a few merchants who for some reason don’t want food trucks on Commercial Drive,” said Johnson, 30.
The neighbourhood Business Improvement Association asked them to move the truck from the park to an on-street parking spot, after some business owners said the truck blocks the view of the park from Renzo’s Cafe and that its generator is too noisy. (McCulloch says he paid $7,000 for an extra-quiet generator upgrade after an initial complaint was made.)
With the truck now forced to park from Monday to Friday on the Drive, paying for parking has added an unexpected $10,000 to the startup’s expenses.
“The only reason we built it is because we were offered this full-time spot at Grandview Park,” Johnson said. “We designed our business plan for the truck to be there full-time.”
The BIA bought two permits issued by the city last year for the Commercial Drive neighbourhood, intending to make sure they went to Drive entrepreneurs, despite the group’s stated opposition to such trucks in the neighbourhood. The Grandview-Woodland Area Council — a non-profit society set up to give area residents a voice in city decisions — also opposes them. Neither group responded to repeated requests for comment on Sunday.
The food truck “was just dropped in our lap,” said Andre Montagliani, owner of Renzo’s Café.
“No one ever consulted us about the food trucks being on Grandview Park,” he said.
But some merchants objected to the licences being used. “They (the BIA) said they would sit on the licences for now and, as they put it, ‘eat’ the licence fee,” Montagliani said.
But, with the licences costing $2,400 a year, the BIA last fall decided to invite applications for trucks. The Daily Catch received one, and another one is planned for farther south on the Drive.
Montagliani and other opponents took their complaints to the area council. After the meeting, which McCulloch said he was not notified of, the BIA asked the truck be moved until a solution is found and “some smoke has cleared.”
Montagliani sees the trucks as competition and as a nuisance — too loud, too smelly — and worries the truck will affect the sidewalk patio he plans to put in this summer.
“It’s not welcome. It competes directly with all the merchants here. There’s more than enough food options around the park for people. We don’t understand how the BIA could accept it and have food carts on Commercial Drive. We’d like to see them move somewhere else,” he said.
But the Daily Catch partners see it differently.
“There’s a lot of advantages to having a food truck in the park. It brings good people to the park. People can come and picnic. We don’t see any problem with it. A few small merchants may see us as competition. We don’t know why, because 99 per cent of people like it.”
The only other fish and chips outlet on Commercial Drive hasn’t voiced any opposition, McCulloch said.
Some Vancouver restaurateurs have been vocal in their opposition to the estimated 100 food trucks in operation, claiming they have an unfair advantage because they have lower overhead costs and don’t have to pay property taxes.
In January, the head of the B.C. Restaurant and Foodservices Association asked Vancouver city council to halt its plans to issue 24 additional permits over the next two years. But Mayor Gregor Robertson’s Vision Vancouver party and councillors have supported growing the number of the trucks.
