Food trucks, families, and friends are rallying to “Give a Hump” on the last Wednesday of each month, through Sept. 30, to benefit select local nonprofits. Beginning July 29, proceeds from each Feed the Camel food truck event—from 5 to 8 p.m. at McKinley Arts and Culture Center in Reno—will go to support Build Our Center in July, Project 150 Reno in August, and American Cancer Society’s The Big Dig in September.

At each Give a Hump event, Feed the Camel producer Mellow Yellow Events will provide a minimum of $500 to the nonprofit beneficiary that month, while the food trucks will also donate a portion of their sales. Mellow Yellow Events Owner Melissa Williams states, “It’s exciting to provide the opportunity for people to give back to the community just by coming out and eating at some of the best food trucks in the area! Plus it gives the nonprofits a chance to educate and interact with people on their cause.”


Funds from Build Our Center’s July Give a Hump day will go towards their goal of establishing and sustaining a community center that will provide a safe and supportive space and environment where people of all ages and backgrounds in the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and allied (LGBTQA) community can come together under one roof for cultural, educational, health, social, and wellness programs.

Project 150 Reno, August’s nonprofit, will receive proceeds to help with their mission of helping local homeless, displaced, and disadvantaged high school students stay in school and graduate to better their lives.

In September, American Cancer Society’s “The Big Dig” will use funds from Give a Hump to help send children with cancer and their families for an exciting day of operating bulldozers, excavators, backhoes, and more.
