DALMAIN Primary School in Kingsley will host a fleet of food trucks on Friday, November 3.
Fundraising co-ordinator Nicola Hunter said there was a “huge interest” in food trucks in the local community.
“We thought it was important to bring the community together in a relaxed picnic-style setting,” she said.
“It makes a great alternative to traditional restaurants, especially with children.”
She said Dine On Dalmain was “not really about the fundraising”.
“We just wanted to create a community event for families in the northern suburbs,” she said.
As well as 12 food trucks, which will include Kingsley’s own Passione Gourmet Deli, there will be 25 market stalls, live acoustic music, a giant deck chair for photos and kids activities with a bouncy castle, face painting, and balloon twisting.
The event will run on the school oval from 4.30-8.30pm.
