Get ready for the rematch of the century! The Tomorrow Fund of The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee will hold the 2nd annual Battle of the Food Trucks on Oct. 14, 3-6 p.m., at Nashville’s Greer Stadium. Attendees will sample food from each food truck, then vote on their favorite dish.

Tickets are $35 and include entry into the event, samples from the entire lineup of food trucks and one drink ticket. Guests bringing five cans of food will receive an extra drink ticket upon entry. All canned food will be donated to Second Harvest of Middle Tennessee.

Participating food trucks includeBeach Bums Juice Bar, Biscuit Love, The Cupcake Collection, Deg Thai, Hit and Miss, Hoss Loaded Burgers, The Hot Spot, Jonbaylaya, Retro Sno, Riff’s, Smoke et al, Sugar Wagon, Waffle Boss, and Wrapper’s Delight, with more participants anticipated.

Proceeds from the event support The Tomorrow Fund, which builds community awareness and responsibility in young professionals by establishing a pattern of community service and charitable giving. In 2011, The Tomorrow Fund was able to provide support to A.B.L.E. Youth, Foundation for Tennessee Chess, IKE Services, In Full Motion, and Our Kids through its grantmaking process.

Last year, at the inaugural Battle of the Food Trucks event, more than 500 attendees awarded food trucks Riff’s with the "most savory dish" and The Cupcake Collection for "best sweets."

Learn More About The Tomorrow Fund

The Tomorrow Fund's logo, the oak tree seedling, represents its philosophy and mission perfectly. The metaphor often used to describe endowment funds within a Community Foundation is planting acorns. By setting aside money in an endowment fund and allowing it to grow, Tomorrow Fund members are ensuring that what now provides small yet meaningful grants in its seedling stage transforms over time into strong and vibrant support for the nonprofit community.

The Tomorrow Fund was formed in 1998 by several young professionals in the greater Nashville community to foster civic leadership and community awareness among their peers. Through both hands-on charitable service and committee-based grantmaking, this organization provides a training ground for the future leaders of Middle Tennessee's philanthropic and outreach efforts.

Annual fundraisers and contributions by members and donors augment the Fund within The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee. Contributions remain in the Fund while a small portion (4-6%) of the Fund is distributed annual for grants to nonprofits throughout Middle Tennessee serving children. By leaving the vast majority of the Fund untouched, the endowment is able to grow and grow, eventually providing a significant stream of grantmaking revenue.
