Park Plaza in Little Rock will host Trucks, Taps & Tunes, a food truck festival to raise money for the Arkansas Foodbank, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, April 20.

 

This lively culinary showcase will allow the community to enjoy some of the city’s best food, drinks and live music — all while raising money for the Arkansas Foodbank, the state’s largest hunger relief nonprofit.

 

“This festival is a great way to showcase Little Rock’s local culinary and craft beer scene while also supporting our broader community,” Second Horizon Capital Managing Partner and Co-Founder Howard Levine said. “We are honored to partner with the Arkansas Foodbank in their efforts to help alleviate hunger across the state.”

 

Trucks, Taps & Tunes will host multiple local food trucks and local craft beer from Stone’s Throw Brewery and Flyway Brewing. Admission includes live entertainment from country music artist Donnie Lee Strickland, parking and other activities. Food and beer tickets, which will include beer cups, will be available for purchase separately.

 

According to the latest statistics from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Arkansas ranks as the No. 1 most food-insecure state in the country, with more than 16% of households statewide not knowing where their next meal might come from. The proceeds will allow the Arkansas Foodbank to buy nourishing food in bulk, providing food for more people in need.

 

“The numbers of individuals and families facing food insecurity in our state are staggering,” Arkansas Foodbank CEO Brian Burton said. “Every dollar raised will help more people in Arkansas, and we are thankful for this event.”

 

Tickets are $5 for adults and free for children 12 years and under. They can be purchased via the Trucks, Taps & Tunes Eventbrite page.

 

StatedXWild and Rock City Harley-Davidson are the sponsors of the event. To learn more about Park Plaza or the Arkansas Foodbank, visit  www.parkplazamall.com or arkansasfoodbank.org.
