The Food Truck Face Off for 2022 was held on Saturday, July 16, at Liberty Park in Salt Lake City. The event featured more than twenty-five food trucks selling a wide variety of different foods. The trucks were there from 4 pm to 10 pm. The event was presented by Discover with other organizations as sponsors to help support local charities.

It was a day to enjoy food and local music. Three Utah nonprofits which serve vulnerable people in the State of Utah benefitted from the event.

4th Street Clinic helps homeless Utahns by providing high-quality health care and support services. They provide programs like Mobile Health Care and Street Outreach to try and deliver primary care to those who may need it most.
Utah Community Action works to empower individuals, strengthen families, and build communities through self-reliance and education programs. Some of the services they offer are: Head Start and Early Head Start, Adult Education, Nutrition, Case Management and Housing, Weatherization, and HEAT utility assistance.
The Children’s Center Utah is providing mental health care to enhance the emotional well-being of babies and young children and their families.

The three charities partnered with The Food Truck League, which works with more than thirty food trucks in bringing the community together.

It was a hot day in Salt Lake City and a good day to go to Liberty Park to get some food. Hundreds of people showed up. Some waited in long lines without complaint as they purchased food from the food trucks which were lined up along the streets at the park.

Food truck owners are small business people who are serving the community. It is a good idea to support them when possible. They are also supporting various charities.
