The Amherst Chamber of Commerce has been helping train "Emerging Business Leaders" in Western New York for the last year. To celebrate, it's hosting the first-ever Buffalo food truck summit tonight in Amherst.
The new one - The Place to Go, operated by Kenny Moriarty of Lexington Avenue's The Place - makes six. It's supposed to join the usual band of wheeled kitchens - Lloyd’s, Whole Hog, Roaming Buffalo, Rolling Joe Café, R&R BBQ - in Amherst from 5 to 7:30 p.m. The address is Ciminelli’s Centerpointe Corporate Park, in the parking lot of 350 Essjay Road, Amherst.
Even without Moriarty's entry, it'll be the first time the five regulars have parked together to serve customers, said Pete Cimino of Lloyd.
If you go, bring something for others who are hungry: admission is a Food Bank donatable item.
"We will also be holding a food drive for the Food Bank of WNY so admission to the event is simply a canned good or other non-perishable item to be donated," wrote the Chamber's Caitlin Campbell McNulty. "The food trucks have also agreed to donate 10 percent of their proceeds from the evening to the Food Bank."
