Ford Fry’s non-profit food truck to roll out soon

Peoples-300x336Ford Fry, the man behind JCT, The Optimist, and the upcoming King + Duke, has lent his culinary craftsmanship to a good cause. Well, specifically, it is a good cause on wheels.

Enter People’s Food Truck – a non-profit food truck that will soon begin offering Fry’s creations all over town. Owned and operated by City of Refuge, a non-profit organization that works on community development though providing food, clothing, shelter, job training, healthcare, and education to Atlanta’s less fortunate. 100% of the proceeds from People’s Food Truck will go to benefit City of Refuge.

There will be a sneak peak of People’s this Friday the 26th at Atlantic Station from 6 p.m.-9 p.m. during the Autism Speaks Light It Up Blue event. The initial menu includes dishes like Mississippi Delta Hot Tamales and steak, smoky onion, pickled carrot, and avocado tacos.

Great that Ford is doing this—Using your time and talent to help others less fortunate is wonderful–Many thanks. Once again I can’t help but wonder if articles such as this will soon no longer be available to the general public, rather only accessible to the subscribers of MYAJC?

I just want to know why there are always non-comments, like the second one posted here, always appearing on these threads?

Imagine that. A private individual acting out of his own good heart to create a product that through a voluntary exchange will raise money to help others. What a stark contrast to the usual theft-based government system of welfare and forced “charity.” Great job Ford!

Good for Chef Fry. It’s a wonderful project and if all in the position gave to the extent, there were be proof other answers are out there to ease human suffering and help the needy and less fortunate. Happy, worthy news!

Encourage all interested to show up at City Of Refuge from 5-7 this evening for food and music. Ford and his truck and a band will be there to help raise money for a great cause. Was there this morning for 5k run and can’t wait to see everyone there later today. Will be a fun time for a great cause. Really offers hands on help to those in need. Be there or be square!!!!!

Why do some people feel the need to politicize everything, trying to make the rest of the world as miserable as they are? This is a wonderful thing being done by Mr. Fry. I hope this generates a lot of interest from others, as well.
