4th Annual Munch Madness to Take Over Agoura High

munch photo9Once again, Agoura High School will be transformed into a foodie’s paradise. For the past four years, some of LA’s top food trucks have been rounded up for the International Baccalaureate’s annual “Agoura Munch Madness.”

The yearly fundraiser was started by parents of students in the IB program, designed to raise funds to pay for teacher training, licensing fees, in-class learning materials and assessment exams, said Carrie McClellan, a history teacher in the IB program.

“The IB students are also required to volunteer at the event in order to get their community service hours in ,” said McClellan.

Founded in Geneva, Switzerland, the IB program prepares students for college with a rigorous curriculum.

In the past, attendees have been treated to tasty finds from Don Chow Tacos, India Jones Chow Truck, A Rockin’ Ice, Tokyo Doggie Style, Cousins Maine Lobster and Ooohlala Crepes, among others.

“It’s a gourmet mobile experience and the food trucks vary every year – from Indian food to pizza, to sushi and grilled cheese sandwiches,” said McClellan.
