The Southern California Mobile Food Vendors Association is assembling food trucks for a fundraising event on Saturday to benefit the rescue and recovery operations in Haiti. The trucks will gather at the TLofts in West L.A. from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. TLofts is a new eco-friendly urban loft community, and they have had much success drawing patrons to dine at several of the city's popular food trucks, so they are more than happy to host the many trucks planning to line the streets of the development serving their food up for a good cause.

Already expressing interest in participating are the Grilled Cheese Truck, Don Chow Tacos, India Jones, The NomNom Truck, the Slice Truck, Asian Soul Kitchen, Dosa Truck, Fishlips Sushi, Barbie's Q, South Philly Experience, Vesuvio, LA FuXion, Calbi BBQ, King Kone, and Get Shaved, with more trucks joining the list daily. Partial Proceeds of Saturday's event will benefit The American Red Cross' Haiti Relief.
