Never intending to be a soup kitchen or feeding line, the Downtown Welcome Table is a homemade meal served on abundant plates by an attentive wait staff. Every Wednesday and Sunday during the lunch hour, houseless friends dine with students, retirees, the working poor and privileged professionals. Unlikely friendships are formed over a shared meal, and all are nourished.
On Wednesday, June 19, 2019 we'll enjoy a "festival-style" meal with music and seven local food trucks offering a variety of delicious fare onsite in our parking lot from 10:30 am - 1:30 pm.
Participating food trucks: Appalachian Chic ~ Bun Intended ~ Cecelia's Kitchen ~ Gypsy Queen ~ Mtn View BBQ ~ Out of the Blue ~ and Root Down.
- Music on the U-Leaf stage by Alex Krug, Ben Phan, Jane Kramer and Headlining act, Josh Blake Organ Trio.
- Fresco in progress: Watch the artists at work in the Haywood Street sanctuary
- Fashion show with apparel from the Haywood Street clothing closet, at 11:45.
- Party in the garden with cooking demonstrations from Bounty & Soul, craft projects and more!
Parking: Available at Isaac Dickson Elementary School, 125 Hill St. (take the footbridge over the highway to get to Haywood St.)
Your purchase of a food truck meal @ $20 covers one meal for you and one meal for a member of the Haywood St. community who is unable to pay.
