Sponsored by  Lucks Media Group, a portion of the proceeds from this event will go to benefit the Toys for Tots Foundation of San Diego.  The mission of San Diego Toys for Tots is to to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December  and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to needy children in the community in which the campaign is conducted, serving civilian and military families.  Toys for Tots' goal is to deliver, through a shiny new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to needy youngsters that will motivate them to grow into responsible, productive, patriotic citizens and community leaders.

A list of some of the participating food trucks for the 1st Annual Toys for Tots Gourmet Food Truck event include:

For the first time ever, San Diego's top two BBQ food trucks will battle it out to determine who reigns supreme.  Super Q will take on Slow Cal BBQ for barbecue bragging rights, presenting a dish each to be judged by a panel of foodies (including SanDiegoVille founder!).  Based on the categories of taste, presentation, originality, and quality, the judges will determine who wins the competition, which will take place at 2pm sharp.
