Food Vendors for the Black Summer Potluck Cookout

Hey friend! 


As we gear up to kick off our Black Summer series Saturday with our potluck in Fairground Park, I wanted to share some of the awesome food-vendors who will be joining us to complement the food options that will be brought by attendees:

Sweet Tooth Barbecue
& Catering

Sweet Tooth will provide an array of grilled meats as well as vegetarian options as a complement to dishes brought by attendees.

Juice Masters

Juice Masters is St. Louis' premiere black-owned food truck that is providing fresh juices and smoothies all across the midwest. Check them out.

Ben & Jerry's

As part of their tour to support the regional #ClosetheWorkhouse campaign, Ben & Jerry's will join us with their Justice Remixed truck to provide ice cream options and rally people to join the movement. Learn more.
We are pumped to have them join us, and we hope that you can attend to celebrate in what's sure to be a tasty, fun, and insightful experience.
