Food Truck Frenzy unites the community

ALABASTER – Alabaster’s Food Truck Frenzy was a hit with residents on Saturday, July 27, as families gathered on the lawn between City Hall and the senior center to enjoy an array of food and sweet treats from vendors throughout the area.

Created by Calera resident Jasmine Agnew, the Food Truck Frenzy unites the community and gives area businesses more exposure. Agnew said it’s all a part of her platform called CEED, community engagement and economic development.

For the first time, the event included a bouncy house for children and vendors selling nonfood items.

Food Truck Frenzy is also a fundraiser for the Angel Warriors Foundation, which provides services and support to individuals with special needs and multiple medical disabilities. Vendors who would like to participate pay a fee and a portion of that goes to AWF.

“This event is for the community but also for a greater cause,” Agnew said. “The Angel Warriors Foundation is such a great organization and I’m excited to be able to help them out.

The event is held once a month. Next month, it will take place on Aug. 25 at Buck Creek Park. More information can be found on the Alabaster Eats page on Facebook.
