Food Truck Fridays is an effort being organized by the Watchung PTO to support students and their families attending district schools. The PTO is commencing its fundraising efforts before the opening of the school year to generate funds for COVID-19 hand-sanitizing stations, cleaning supplies, and contact less paper towel dispensers needed in September at Bayberry and Valley View Schools.
This fundraising initiative takes place on four consecutive Fridays in August, the 7th, 14th, 21st, and 28th, rain or shine from 4 to 8 pm at Bayberry School. Each week, two dinner entree-based trucks alongside one dessert truck will be featured selling their local specialties to area residents. Trucks will donate a percentage of their proceeds back to the Watchung PTO. All food purchased will be for take-out, and participants are requested to follow COVID-19 guidelines and social distancing measures.
Dine-to-Donate is an effective fundraising method utilized by the Watchung PTO over the last several years, providing a social connection for residents, a boost to area restaurant businesses, and funds for the school district.
