The City of Opelika will hold a “Food Day for United Way” Aug. 18 from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. at Courthouse Square.
The event will feature food from local food truck vendors and several downtown Opelika restaurants, games for children and adults, live deejay and a playing of “Pie Face” with several city department heads.
Beyond a time of fun and fellowship is the chance to give back to an organization that does so much good for its community, according to a post on the City of Opelika’s Facebook page.
“We know that the local United Way agencies do great work in our community. There are four main impact areas that (the organization) focuses on: strengthening families and community; crisis, education; and health.”
All monies collected from the event will be donated to the United Way of Lee County, located at 2133 Executive Park Drive in Opelika.
Following is a list of participating food trucks and restaurants:
• Butcher Paper BBQ
• Scoops Real Italian Ice
• The Icey Girl
• Kona Ice
• O Town Ice Cream
• Drive-By Tacos
• Niffer’s at the Tracks
