Palm Coast, FL (April 20, 2021) – Offering up a cultural trip around the world with food as the main attraction, Food Truck Tuesday retuned to Palm Coast under fair skies and wide open spaces.
From Irie Cuisine’s jerk chicken and African Love Kitchen’s lamb curry to Monsta Lobsta’s famous lobster rolls and local go-to Cool Beans Barbeque, there was a dish to appease every palate.
The once-a-month food truck gathering takes place in Town Center and shines a spotlight on a local charity or nonprofit organization.
Representing the Family Life Center, Flagler County’s only domestic violence and rape crisis shelter, Candice Wilkie talked with those out for dinner around Central Park about the facility’s 24-hour free and confidential services.
“Tonight we’re here to promote our services because it’s sexual assault awareness month and we’re hoping we’ll be able to reach the community and let them know that we’re here,” said Wilkie. “These events help us let people know that they’re not alone, that there is help out there.”
It was also a chance for Wilkie and the Family Life Center team to promote this weekend’s annual event to benefit the shelter.
“We have ‘Walk a Mile In Her Shoes’ on Saturday, 10 am at Heroes Park, which is right behind the Flagler County Library. We hope that people will come out and help show awareness for sexual assault awareness month,” she said.
“Typically it’s a pretty big event where men wear red, four inch stilettos but due to COVID that’s changed things a little bit, so it’s going to be wear your sneakers, come out and walk to raise awareness in the community.” For more information, visit www.familylifecenterflagler.org.
