Here’s how it works: The truck owner gives your nonprofit fundraising group a percentage of the sales on a designated day or night of the event for all the customers that your organization brings to their business. Most of the time the truck will limit their availability to specific times of the week; usually one their slow days or nights.
A food truck fundraiser requires virtually no planning and very little investment from your group. If the truck owner requires a flyer or coupon to be presented for your group to receive credit, it is very easy to create these items yourself or in some cases the food truck owner will print those up themselves.
Why does a food truck participate in this type of fundraiser?
- It makes the truck look good. Giving back to the community enhances their corporate image.
- It gives them long lines on a slow night.
- It introduces people to the food truck that might not visit otherwise.
What kinds of food trucks participate in these types of fundraisers? Almost every kind:
Many locally owned food truck owners are eager to participate in your event. Don’t forget to add them to your potential list of trucks to call on. They often will offer you a better deal than those owned by chains and franchisees.
Be aware that although some trucks that are owned by chain and franchise restaurants are available for fundraising, the decision to do so is up to the individual food truck operator. And terms of the fundraiser will vary from truck to truck. Some may make you present a coupon, tell the service window attendant in advance, drop receipts in a box, or order only certain things on the menu to qualify.
Any food truck that you, or a member of your nonprofit fundraising group, have a personal connection to via the owner, operator, manager, or worker also may offer you a better deal.
