Half a dozen food trucks will converge on Kiawah Island next month to support Back Pack Buddies.

Ten percent of sales from Freshfields Village’s  first-ever Food Truck Rodeo will benefit the hunger relief program at Angel Oak Elementary School on Johns Island. Back Pack Buddies weekly distributes 50-60 bags of nonperishable snacks to children at risk of going hungry over the weekend.

Hello, My Name is BBQ; AutoBahn Food Truck; Coastal Crust; Roadside Seafood; Refueler’s Mobile Café and The Cookie Chick are scheduled to appear at the Apr. 6 event. The rodeo runs from 12 noon-4 p.m.; admission and parking are free.

Freshfields Village is located at 149 Village Green Lane on Johns Island.
