Lines for food trucks serving burgers, lobster rolls and grilled cheese may have been long on Friday evening at the eighth annual Eat the Street, but all money raised benefited a worthy cause in the community.
The event was hosted in Franklin’s Bicentennial Park, with thousands attending to enjoy the variety of food trucks. Many brought their lawn chairs and pets.
Proceeds from the event benefited the 21st District Recovery Court by helping the nonprofit to continue providing program participants with the services, treatment and supervision they need to successfully manage their recovery.
The 21st District Recovery Court is one of the alternative sentencing options available for nonviolent offenders. The nonprofit treatment program lasts two years and provides counseling to help overcome addiction.
