From a press release:

The NativityMiguel School of Scranton will host a Food Truck Festival at PNC Field in Moosic on Saturday, June 4 from noon until 5 p.m.

11 trucks have committed to the event: The Sweet Lush Cupcake Camper, PananaMan, Manning’s Mobile Ice Cream Shoppe, Southwest Savory Grill, Peculiar Culinary Company, Notis the Gyro King, Taste Time to Love Us, Uncle Paul’s Stuffed Pretzels, Vince’s Cheesesteaks, Boyer Brothers Bar-B-Que and Deli, and The Caribbean Food Truck.

Tickets purchased in advance are $10 and include entry to the festival, a general admission ticket to the June 4 Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders baseball game versus the Columbus Clippers at 4:05 p.m., and free parking.

Don Jones, owner of Southwest Savory Grill, said, “We are proud to help the wonderful educators at NativityMiguel School of Scranton. This food truck festival is one of the most creative ways to raise money that I’ve ever seen. Good food, good music, and a ball game after? We love it!”

Live entertainment includes local bands Jung Bergo, Facing the Giants, and Junk Drawer.

All proceeds from the event will go to NativityMiguel School of Scranton, which is the only tuition-free Catholic school in Northeastern Pennsylvania committed to impoverished children. NMS operates independently of the Diocese of Scranton and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. All funds must be raised privately in order to fund the children’s education.

Luciana Musto, director of advancement, said, “This is a wonderful way for the community to come together to learn about our students and our school. I love that we will help deserving children while also supporting local businesspeople who work very hard to be successful. It’s going to be a great day for Northeastern Pennsylvania.”

The RailRiders have graciously partnered with NativityMiguel School of Scranton. Rachel Mark, director of community relations, said, “We are so looking forward to hosting the NEPA Food Truck Festival at PNC Field. The RailRiders are always open to supporting organizations that better our community, and NativityMiguel School of Scranton does just that.”

There are a variety of sponsorship packages still available. For more information, please contact Luciana Musto at 570-955-5176. To purchase tickets, visit the RailRiders box office at PNC Field (235 Montage Mountain Rd., Moosic) or call 570-969-BALL.
