Hope for Firefighters: a different kind of food truck.

They protect, they save, and on June 3rd, they serve lunch.

Sure, you’ve HEARD of Firehouse Chili but have you ever tasted the real thing? By which Ms. Go Go means cooked by a bona fide firefighter?   Didn’t think so.

Remedy that situation Thursday, June 3rd, by heading to Hope Street for the 13th annual Hope for Firefighters benefit where  25 firehouses from around Los Angeles will be cooking up great lunch grub. (This is not the day to crave a goat cheese salad, Go Go’ers.)

If you have small fry in tow, the event promises to be kid heaven with fire apparatus displays/demonstrations as well as competitions like bucket brigades and “an old-fashioned hose pull.”  (Presumably, a firefighter will  explain how the latter differs from a “new-fashioned hose pull”. )

The event not only honors  firefighters but raises money for the Los Angeles Firemen’s Relief Association’s Widows, Orphans and Disabled Firemen’s Fund through  the sale of lunch tickets, raffle items, and the sale of LAFD merchandise.

They cook, you eat, everybody wins.

Ready?  U Know U Want 2 Go Go….

    1. Ha ha! I refrained from mentioning that they were “firing up” the grill.
