Food Truckin’ for Josh Cares will bring some of the best food trucks in Cincinnati to one place for lunch. Trucks include C’est Cheese, Cold Stone Creamery, EAT!, New Orleans To Go, Pizza Bomba, Red Sesame, Snowie, and Sugar Snap.
While food trucks are popping up all over town on various street corners and at special events, festivals showcasing food trucks are still relatively new to Cincinnati and none have ever occurred in the heart of downtown Cincinnati during a weekday lunch hour.
Proceeds will go to Josh Cares, a non-profit organization dedicated to ensuring that no critically or chronically ill children go through a hospitalization alone, without the support of a parent by their sides when they need it the most.
While we at Josh Cares are very proud of our efforts to ensure that children do not have to face their time in the hospital alone, there remain far too many times when we are not able to help.
At current staffing levels, our Child Life Specialists mostly cover weekday shifts—a critical time when patients are often enduring frightening and/or painful medical procedures for which they need support to cope. But we know we need to provide even more time each day with our patients, whether they are facing an immediate crisis or not.
We urgently need your help so that we can provide more coverage during the evening hours between dinner and bedtime and throughout long weekends. The team is currently restructuring their weekly schedules to improve coverage during these long and lonely hours. In the long term, we know we need to hire several additional Child Life Specialists so that we can be there to support these children during any waking moment we are needed. We can only do this with increased support from the community.
