Eat the Street, Franklin’s first food truck-themed fundraiser, returned for its eighth run on Friday, May 3.
Since 2011, the area’s growing community of food trucks have gathered together in Franklin in support of the 21st District Recovery Court. The event took place on May 3 at Franklin Bicentennial Park, located at Hillsboro Rd. and 3rd Ave. North.
The family and dog-friendly event featured more than 30 food vendors and music by Franklin’s DJ Train. Attendees showed up early waiting for their favorite food trucks to open. Lines were formed, tables, chairs, and blankets were placed in the grassy area as the weather held off for the event.
The money raised through sponsorships and vendor fees enables the nonprofit to continue to provide program participants with the services, treatment and supervision they need to successfully manage their recovery. Since its first graduating class in 2004, more than 200 participants have graduated from the two-year program, demonstrating their commitment to be free from addiction and live healthful lifestyles.
