Every Tuesday, food trucks band together to help raise money for Canyon High School.

Crepes find their place on Canyons menu


I like following the food trucks wherever they go. Theyre all unique and give a different kind of experience. Trey Ross, Whittier

Crepes Bonaparte employees Nicole Laing of Yorba Linda and Casey Lee of Irvine work to carefully construct 1 00 crepes every night.

Chunk-n-Chip Cookies

We saw Cousins Maine Lobster. Now, Im from New England, so thats what got me to come. This feels like a tailgate party in the parking lot but with lobster. Jim Floyd, Anaheim Hills, originally from Cape Cod, Mass.

anyon High Schools music department is on a roll with its weekly fundraiser. And with it, a half-dozen food trucks roll in. The Golden Warrior Regiment, which consists of the schools band, drum line, color guard and orchestra, has been putting on the fundraiser since November 2011 and has no plans to stop this summer. By bringing in food trucks, the Golden Warrior Regiment receives a percentage of the trucks income. The trucks rotate every week, but they range in cuisine from tacos to Cajun food and waffle sandwiches. It takes about $110,000 a year to run a successful band and color guard, and costs for things such as uniforms or competition registration fees can add up, said Canyon High School Band Boosters coordinator Alan Niizawa. What the district sup-

plies is the salary, the band room and a small amount of money for music, he said. Everything else is a donation, so we need to find fundraising to cover some of the expense. This year, the group is hoping to fund a performance at Walt Disney World. Were really proud of the kids, and everyone seems excited about the program, band Director Harold Witten said. We have to raise a lot of funds, so its great we have the food trucks to help us out. The fundraiser draws a variety of people, from families out for dinner to high school students on dates. Its like having international cuisine in one spot, said Crepes Bonaparte food truck employee Ricardo Figueroa of Anaheim. If you go to a spot like this, theres guaranteed food for everyone. For customer Cindy Miller, it was her first trip to the food truck fundraiser, but she already knew people in the crowd. Miller, a local yoga teacher, ran into a few of her stu-

dents while picking up food from Cousins Maine Lobster. A group of patrons a few tables down noticed Miller, too. One of the ladies laughed, signaling out a friend for skipping out on class. A group from the San Antonio Catholic Church came together, and they only half-jokingly considered holding their Bible study at the event. Its just a good community that were able to share here, Anaheim Hills resident Yvonne Floyd said.

I like the different trucks. Nathanael Boll, 6 He mostly likes monster trucks, but they dont have any of those here. Luanne Boll, mom, both of Anaheim Hills


Number of students participating: about 1 50 Year the term Golden Warrior Regiment was coined: 1 995 Awards won this school year: Marching band won two first-place and two second-place awards at the Southern California School Band and Orchestra Association regional competition. Drum line placed eighth out of 43 in the Southern California Percussion Alliance regional competition. Places the group has performed: Hawaii, San Francisco and San Diego

If any money from this supports the high school, then Im all for it. Yvonne Floyd, Anaheim Hills

Laing passes a crepe down to Anaheim Hills resident Luanne Boll, who ordered some for herself and her son Nathanael.

Various food trucks come and go every week from Canyon High Schools fundraiser, but regular patrons expect the Crepes Bonaparte truck to be there weekly. A line forms outside, made up of customers eager to try every kind of crepe. The menu ranges from breakfast crepes served with crisp slices of bacon to sweet crepes stuffed with toppings such as cinnamon, Nutella or sweetened mascarpone cheese. But inside the truck, three employees squeeze past each other through the trucks 3-foot-wide aisle in a sort of organized chaos to fulfill orders. Thats why there needs to be communication, crepe maker Ricardo Figueroa said. We help each other, but we also need to be out of each others way. The truck is filled with all the necessities: a commercial sink, refrigerator, four grills and too many Nutella jars to count. On an average night, theyll go through 50 bananas and 10 extra-large jars of Nutella. We pack the refrigerator tightly so nothing moves around, said Nicole Laing of Yorba Linda. And you have to be careful when you take turns so nothing falls over. The atmosphere is casual; the truck even has its own name, Gaston, and employees have creative freedom to come up with their own recipes. Figueroa came up with a recipe that pays homage to bananas Foster. Crepes Bonaparte was opened by Fullerton resident Christian Murcia and his wife, Danielle. Canyon High Schools fundraiser is one of Crepes Bonapartes oldest events. Thats really spawned the different high schools we work with, Murcia said. His truck now visits other locations including Trabuco Hills and Laguna Hills high schools and the Pomona Fairplex. Gatherings like Canyon High School provide a special type of community that you dont get at a restaurant, he said. When you eat at a food truck, its fun and you get to talk with people you wouldnt necessarily talk to people who you wouldnt meet at a restaurant. You get to try a variety of food. On top of that, its still supporting small businesses.
