The local restaurant community was completely shut out of this event this year. I know they were recruited by the now defunct "A Place for Teens" non-profit in the past. And calling up a few "non local" food trucks was the easy answer to eliminate the Health Dept regulations for events like this. But the bottom line is this, the local restaurant s have always supported this event because it was a great cause, and because they were given the ability to promote their business. So not only did you take away that exposure for them, you also brought outside food vendors in to compete for business that day that do not support our town in any way. They don't pay taxes, they don't pay the town for a business license, they don't contribute sales tax dollars, they don't support local schools, local arts, local anything. I don't know what financial arrangement was made with these food trucks and I could be wrong...but my guess is that are not donating 100% of the sales to Kiwanis. Maybe they are not donating anything. I agree the Kiwanis Club does wonderful things. You should have asked the local restaurants first.
