Celebrating 50 Years of Service

Food Truck Battle on the Yellowstone Grant Application

What is the Food Truck Battle on the Yellowstone?

Exchange is an all-volunteer, national service organization for men and women who want to serve their community, develop leadership skills and enjoy new friendships. The first club in Billings began in 1954 and made its mark selling beer at horseraces and developing the Par 3 Golf Course. From those beginnings, the Breakfast Exchange Club was established on April 1, 1967.

The Club raises its proceeds by selling beer and wine throughout the MetraPark Arena buildings and grounds. This allows the Club, through good sales and no labor cost, to raise thousands of dollars for nonprofits in Billings and the surrounding areas that fit our mission of the prevention of child abuse, and the support of Youth Programs, Americanism and Community Service.

The Food Truck Battle on the Yellowstone is a fundraiser where the proceeds specifically go to a Veteran’s organization. 10% of the sales from the food trucks and all proceeds from gate fees and beer sales will go to the organization(s) chosen.

What is the Club looking for in a grant applicant?

It is important that grant applications from local 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations fit within the Veterans or Americanism program of service.

Here are a few other guidelines of what we’re looking for in applications:

  • The number of lives impacted by a grant
  • Lack of duplication with other programs
  • Innovation and creativity
  • Lifetime impact on individuals (Veterans specifically)
  • Other sources of funding
  • Local impact

Are there grant applications the Club won’t fund?

We do not provide funds for the following:

  • Individual medical or related expenses
  • Travel for teams, athletes, students, etc.
  • Building funds or endowments
  • Specific staff positions
  • Dinners, shows, or other events.

When are applications accepted and how much is available to a nonprofit?

Applications will be accepted until March 1, 2020, and only one application from an organization. Organizations will be notified by the Food Truck Battle chairperson if grant requests are approved. Unsuccessful organizations will not be notified due to time restraints of our volunteer-based organization.
