Occupy Walnut Street Canned Drive and Food Truck Rodeo

Image by courtesy Crisis Ministries On Friday Nov. 18th Crisis Ministries is hosting "Occupy Walnut Street", an effort to collect canned goods and drive awareness for Hunger and Homelessness Week.

From 11 to 2 on Friday, local food trucks will corral on Walnut Street (the parallel to Meeting Sreet where the shelter is located.)  Roti Rolls, Taco Boy, Diggity Dogs and Geechee Island will be on hand to sell their wares. And the shelter's inviting everybody in the community to bring non perishable foods to fill their food truck.
Shelter workers say 99% of their non perishable food donations come around the holiday season, and their goal is to fill the shelter's food truck on the 18th. (All food served at the shelter - 365 days a year - is donated by the community!)
There will be plenty of parking (take "E" street off Meeting and follow the signs). Crisis Ministries is also located on the DASH route, so downtown lunchers can venture over easily.
