The first proposal happens
Sunday, August 8, 2010 | Posted by Lucia
Here's Christine Liu, the first Feast Mass grant recipient, at the food truck festival she organized with the help of our $320 grant.
With over ten trucks and carts from around town, the festival definitely succeeded in bringing together the handful of trucks that are usually scattered across the city. It was exactly the sort of project we were hoping Feast Mass would fund: it brought a ton of Bostonians together, helped to solidify a community (or at least prove that a food truck scene does exist here), and it was a fun thing to do on a Sunday.
We're excited about the new friends and connections that are already starting to form around Feast Mass and the projects we fund. We saw people there who had come to the first Feast and voted for Christine's proposal. And, after meeting them at the first Feast, Christine hired the same design duo who made our logo to do the identity work for the festival.
And then the event itself, the afternoon of barbeque/lemonade/chicken + waffles/pickles/ice cream, sweating and searching for shade, running into people we know, even the excitement of a bike ride to the South End, was so summer and so Boston, and we're glad we played a tiny part in making it happen.
