Community Comes Together to Help Food Truck Owner with Pancreatitis
KAYSVILLE, Utah – A Kaysville community came together Saturday to show their support for the owner of one of the city’s favorite food trucks: Rickle’s.
Many popular food trucks gathered near 33 South Main Street to help Rick Schuurman.
Last month, Schuurman was on his way to a food truck event when he suddenly became ill. He spent the next 14 days in the hospital where doctors discovered his pancreas was dying.
With no insurance and facing at least a year of treatment, businesses in Kaysville and the food truck community rallied together to donate all of Saturday’s proceeds to the family.
“I would just like to thank all of the food trucks and all of my community for being so loving and gracious and kind, and just wanting to help,” Haley Talbot, Shuurman’s daughter, said.
Hundreds of people came out to support the Rickle’s philly cheesesteak truck and all of the food trucks.
If you missed Saturday’s fundraiser there is also a GoFundMe account under the name Rickle’s Recovery.
