Blue Knights to Replace Mobile Food Truck

UPDATE: We are getting close to our goal of having a NEW mobile kitchen ready to roll for the 2017 but we need your help to do it! Read below on how you can help make history for the Blue Knights before April 1st!


http://www.coolfundraisingideas.net/thermometer/DENVER, CO – The Blue Knights will be replacing their mobile kitchen trailer after 25 years of service for a future Drum Corps International season.

What would your kitchen look like after 1.6 million meals?

The Blue Knights Food Trailer has served over 1.6 million meals and traveled over 250,000 miles in its many years of service.

“If your kitchen was built in 1992 and bounced around the country every summer during that time, would it need to be replaced?” said Keith Huffman, Volunteer Coordinator for the Blue Knights. “The BK Food Truck’s bones are weak and fragile and it has earned its retirement!”

Over the last 3 years:

  • At least $5,000 in food has been thrown away due to broken refrigerators and freezers.
  • Upwards of $2,000 in repairs to freezers and refrigerators have been made.
  • The offline water storage wants to stay offline and requires a repair.

Not to mention:

  • Refrigerator space is typical of a family of eight. We have a family of 200!
  • 2 of our 4 ovens are working consistently.
  • It requires use of the split rim tire, which is sometimes difficult to get serviced because of limited availability.
  • Hot oven doors open into restricted space.
  • Without air conditioning, cook staff experience working temperatures of 120 degrees or more.
  • Plus more items…

The BK Food Truck has outlived its usefulness and it is time to build a new one. But, we cannot do it alone.  Please consider making a 100% tax-deductible gift by clicking on the button below!
