Battle Born Burger Showdown

So many burgers, so little time.


Load it up with some good, old-fashioned do-gooding in every bite!  That’s just what we’re doing with the Battle Born Burger Showcase-Showdown, where every burger fights hunger right here in our community.  This year, the Food Bank has teamed up with some of our favorite local restaurants and food trucks to bring some extra sizzle to Hunger Action Month with the Battle Born Burger Showcase-Showdown.

Burger Showdown: Idlewild Park | September 30 ~ 4-8pm

We can’t think of a better way to wrap up Hunger Action Month than with a food truck party-meets burger competition that makes a difference in our community with every tasty bite!  That’s why we’re heading to Idlewild Park on Friday, September 30 for the inaugural Battle Born Burger Showdown.  Sample burgers and other menu offerings from each of our burger competitors, plus treats from Antojitos Colibri and beverages from Mr. Margarita and Pizen & Wine.  Which burger will win your vote for the people’s choice award?
