The Slutty Vegan Food Truck set up shop in Madison on Thursday with local leaders hoping the event won’t be just a one-night stand.

“If today’s turnout is any indication, we are hoping to do this once month,” said Babs Johnston, board member for the Boys and Girls Club of North Central Georgia (BGCNCG).

On Thursday, camped outside the headquarters of the BGCNCG on Monticello Road in Madison, dozens of patrons waited in the sun for the chance to try the delicious vegan cuisine, which includes a variety of plant-based burgers and other animal-free treats, while benefitting the local boys and girls club.

Bob Mackey, president and CEO of the BGCNCG and Madison Councilwoman Carrie Peters-Reid teamed up to bring the Atlanta-based Slutty Vegan food truck to Madison, hoping to make Food Truck Thursdays a regular monthly event.

“Everyone loves a good food truck. Food Truck Thursday is a once-a-month opportunity to showcase a new or local food truck to the area while providing new opportunities to engage the community and raise dollars for local non-profits such and the Boys & Girls Club, Ferst Readers, and Spread Love,” said Mackey. “Partnering with Spread Love and Carrie Peters gives us many more reasons to spread love. Finding the new normal has become the new normal.”
