Food Truck Festival Raises Prom Money for Needy Students

Hundreds of people came out to Val Verde High School in Perris on March 18 to take part in the campus’ first food truck festival to raise money so underprivileged students could attend their prom. 

Customers bought mocha lattes, gourmet burgers, wraps, homemade cupcakes and of course, stopped by the “Baconmania” truck.
