You can find everything from creative grilled cheese recipes to tacos of all types this year at the Humana Challenge. Bob Marra, CEO of the Humana Challenge, worked hard to bring in 12 gourmet food trucks for the first time.
“I think there’s a real extra buzz this year for something as simple as food,” said Marra.
They’re calling it the ‘Food Truck Frenzy.’
“This event is perfect for it,” said Susan Stein of Rancho Mirage.
But, the event promotes a healthy lifestyle, which leads people to wonder how exactly the food trucks fit in.
“We do have some of the great health food trucks out here as part of it,” explained Marra.
Ryan Butorac, who owns Vizzi Truck, thinks food trucks can be a healthy choice. His truck uses local ingredients and avoids trans fat.
“Everything is done here,” he said. “It’s all made here fresh, nothing is processed and I think that’s actually what makes food trucks a lot better nothing is processed.”
Most of the entrees cost less than 20 dollars.
“It’s making art with food and when you see people walk away and they have this smile like oh my what did I get it’s just the best feeling that you can get,” explained Butorac.
According to Marra, the food trucks offer something for everyone. More food means the golfers can cater to more people — golfers or not.
Different food trucks are scheduled to arrive at the event each day. Click here for a complete list of trucks at the Humana Challenge.
