Where The Money Goes

The Rotary Club of Whitby’s annual Food Truck Frenzy is more than just a fun festival for families and foodies. It provides much-needed support to many local and global organizations.

Since our first Food Truck Frenzy in 2014, we have raised more than $1,000,000 from the event and through the support of our sponsors, including our platinum sponsor Nurse Chev-Olds and Tribute Homes as well as the food trucks, local vendors and attendees.

Combined with our successful golf tournaments over the past 25+ years, we have been able to make significant contribution to our community.
