INDIANAPOLIS — The Arc of Indiana will host Food Fest - a food truck lunch event to benefit people with developmental disabilities and their families. This inaugural event takes place 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Aug. 24 on Monument Circle in downtown Indianapolis.
The event will feature 10 central Indiana food trucks that will line the south side of Monument Circle, offering a variety of lunch time meal items and desserts. A $7 ticket can be exchanged for a lunch item and a $5 ticket can be exchanged for a dessert item. Tickets may be purchased in advance or at the event.
Participating food trucks include: Barsha Gyros, Tacos Without Borders, Cutie Pie Pizza, Groovy Guys Fries, Caveman Truck, One For The Road, Nacho Mama, Spice Box, Petunia - The Flying Cupcake Truck, and Nicey Treat.
The event will also feature live music provided by DJs Erik Smith and Shawn Fulton of Marion. Smith and Fulton, who live with a developmental disability, own their own company, E & S Classic Sounds. Tables and chairs will be provided.
"Food trucks have added to the landscape of Indianapolis and we appreciate their coming together to help us celebrate people with disabilities," said John Dickerson, executive director of The Arc of Indiana. "We also want to thank the other disability organizations participating who work every day to make our community better."
Food Fest proceeds will benefit The Arc of Indiana, founded in 1956 by parents of children with intellectual and developmental disabilities who joined together to build a better and more accepting world for their children. Today The Arc is recognized as Indiana's leading advocacy organization for people with disabilities. Learn more about The Arc by visiting the website www.arcind.org.
