The New Vision Christian Church in University Heights is hosting a food truck rally today from 3:30 to 7 p.m. to raise money for the neighboring Alice Birney Elementary School which was heavily damaged by an arsonist last month.

Investigators said the fire was started with a flammable liquid in an office and spread into the cafeteria, kitchen, and guidance offices, causing $600,000 in damage.

According to Birney Elementary Principal Amanda Hammond-Williams, the estimated cost to replace all the before and afterschool materials destroyed in the fire is $50,000.

Birney Elementary is a year-round magnet school with about 500 students. Tabe BBQ, Food Farm, New York On Rye, Groggy’s, and Mrs. Frostie trucks will be on site today donating 20% of their earnings to the fire relief fund.
