Lime Truck + PlaygroundDTSA helping charity BAMGAM

International non-profit children’s organization, Buy a Meal Give a Meal (BAMGAM), has partnered with the Food Network’s Great Food Truck Race winner, the Lime Truck.

For every carnitas fries sold, the Lime Truck will donate 25 cents to support the Second Harvest Food Bank and Jam International.

The $7 fries are the most popular item on the menu,  according to Lime Truck owner Daniel Shemtob.

Besides the Lime Truck, The Playground in Santa Ana and Roy’s in Newport Beach are also involved with BAMGAM.  The Playground contributes money for every pork chop entree they sell, while Roy’s organizes cooking demonstrations to raise money for BAMGAM.

BAMGAM Founder, Brandon Sowers, said that there are many other food trucks and restaurants that are currently interested in getting involved. BAMGAM is currently working with vendors in South Africa, Australia, and the U.S.
