Christmas is already upon us. To us at Clean Plate Charlie, that means drinking lots of eggnog, wearing ugly reindeer sweaters, and making frequent stress-filled trips to the mall to buy presents.
It's also the time of year to help people who won't have a great holiday season. Especially children.
Each year, U.S. Marines present Toys For Tots, and collect unwrapped toys to distribute to children who otherwise would go without a gift to open for the holidays.
you want to help out a local child and eat some good food, come out to
the Toys for Tots food truck fundraiser tomorrow, November 16th at the
Carnival Cruise Lines Headquarters in Miramar.
From 5 - 10 p.m., enjoy food from a dozen food trucks. Don't forget to
bring an unwrapped toy with you, because the trucks will be collecting
them for the annual drive.
To sweeten the pot, Ms. Cheezious will give a one dollar discount to anyone who donates a toy. That's one cheesy deal.
Trucks serving dinner include Ms. Cheezious,
The Fish Box,
Latin Burger, Dim Ssam a Gogo,
Jefe's Original Fish Taco,
Sugar Yummy Mama,
Gelato, The Red Koi,
The Flying Saucer, and
Carnival Cruise Lines, 3400 Lakeside Drive, Miramar
