Food trucks to rally in Riverside on Tuesday

Since San Bernardino County overturned its ban on food trucks a little over a year ago, Riverside County has been the sole remaining county to still ban them from operating on a daily basis.

That may soon change.

County Supervisor Kevin Jeffries is starting a push to overturn the ban, and he’s leading by doing.

There will be a food truck “rally” Tuesday (June 25) at the County Administrative Center at 4080 Lemon St. in downtown Riverside.

Food trucks rolling into La Sierra University on Sunday

Just found out about this event…the La Sierra University senior class is hosting an art walk and food truck festival from 4 to 8 p.m. Sunday (April 28).

Everyone is welcome to attend the event, which is a fundraiser for the senior class gift. There’s no mention of an admission price, so I’m thinking it’s a free event.

Since La Sierra is a Seventh-day Adventist campus, the focus is on meat-free trucks. So, no Bacon MANia.

The event will be held at the “statue patio,” which I believe is the same as the sculpture plaza, which is at the end of Yeager Way, the main entrance to the campus. But I could be totally wrong.

La Sierra University is at 4500 Riverwalk Parkway, Riverside.
