Beats and Street Eats Benefits Food Collaborative
Macomb County Planning & Economic Development, in partnership with The Macomb Food Collaborative and assistance from the Mount Clemens Downtown Development Authority and the city of Mount Clemens, is holding the first-ever Beats and Street Eats 2016 on Wednesday, July 13, 5-9 pm.  This event will feature food trucks from El Charro, Andiamo, All American Ice Cream, Norma G's Fine Caribbean Cuisine and others.  Each food truck will be donating $50 to The Macomb Food Collaborative for the Farm to Fork conference to be held at the University Center of Macomb Community College in 2017. The Macomb Food Collaborative works to ensure access to safe, fresh, fair and healthy food for all. They promote a vibrant, local food economy, sustainability and good nutrition through education, outreach and support. Macomb Place in downtown Mount Clemens will be blocked off for the event between southbound Gratiot and Pine Street. The Orleans Sports Café at 100 Macomb Place will allow people to use their patio to eat the food purchased from the trucks. The Music Messengers band will be playing during the event as well. In addition, from 4:30-6:30 pm, the Barrel Bike Bar will be available to bring people to and from the event to the Macomb County Circuit Court building.
