Utah Community Action’s Central Kitchen conducts the summer food program, which runs for 11 weeks at four sites throughout Salt Lake County. Family enrichment is also a part of the program with activities planned daily to engage everyone and to create a more inviting atmosphere.

Food Truck Face-Off


Saturday, June 10, 2017
Liberty Park, 600 E 900 S, Salt Lake City
3:00pm – 9:00pm
Click here to buy tickets.

Each year, Utah Community Action is one of five local non-profits who “compete” to sell tickets to this fun family event. Guests purchase tickets from the charity of their choice, then use those tickets to visit over 30 food trucks from the Food Truck league for delicious dishes.

A portion of each ticket is donated to the nonprofit, and the food truck keeps the remainder. At the end of the event, one nonprofit and one food truck will be declared the winner. Attendees also enjoy live music and a beer garden – last year’s event attracted over 10,000 people!

Sponsorship opportunities are available for this event – please contact Event Coordinator Avani Patel for details:

The Bloom Gala is an exclusive event that benefits Utah Community Action’s Head Start program. Guests experience a cocktail hour, silent auction, seated dinner service, special speakers, live auction, and dancing to a live band.

In 2017, the Bloom Gala will return to La Caille, a beautiful and secluded venue in Sandy, UT. The event will also be held on a Saturday to accommodate our guests’ busy schedules.

This event is a special evening for our donors, and there are many opportunities to sponsor the gala, purchase a table, and contribute to our program’s success. Seats fill quickly, so please reserve your spot early.

We look forward to celebrating, raising funds for our Head Start children, and hosting you this year!
