Footprints Food Fight is On!!

by Glenni Lorick, IBCLC
When you hear the words "food fight" you may have images of an adolescent cafeteria brawl that lands a dozen students in the principal's office. Fortunately, this is NOT the kind of food fight that Footprints Ministry is bringing to Huntsville in just a couple of weeks!

On November 9, from 2-6 pm, Footprints will hold a Food Fight food truck cook-off at AM Booth's Lumberyard (108 Cleveland Ave. NW) in downtown Huntsville. Participants in the fight include Sugar Belle , Food Fighters Bustaurant, The Little Red Lunchbox, and Follow Me.

Each person who purchases a ticket for the event will receive a ticket for a specialty from each food truck. Then all attendees will have the opportunity to vote on which truck's offerings they like the best!

It will be a lot of fun, but more importantly, it will benefit Footprints Ministry in the Huntsville Hospital NICU. I have first-hand experience with the terrific care provided by our local NICU, so I am very excited to be a sponsor of this event! Footprints has been active in Huntsville for several years now, offering both tangible and intangible expressions of hope and love to NICU parents. They give a special gift bag to every NICU family, visit with and pray with parents who would like that kind of support, and make a special effort during holidays to be present for families during this difficult time.

Local coordinator, Katie Bowers, is herself a mother of two NICU graduates, and she felt led to get involved with this ministry.. The Food Fight for Footprints will provide much needed funds to purchase the supplies needed for the gift bags and help struggling NICU parents. Get your tickets now for just $20 each! From November 1-November 8, A Nurturing Moment will donate $1 for every sale we make to Footprints. We will also give YOU the opportunity to round up your purchase with a contribution to this valuable ministry!
