Eating Our Way Through The DNC

Wednesday, August 03, 2016


As if we needed more evidence that Philadelphia is finally getting the credit it has long deserved as one of the best food destinations in the country, every major publication seemed to put out its own list of all the wonderful places to eat during the Democratic National Convention held here last week.  Many of our best restaurants, big and small, were visited by prominent DNC speakers or bought out for the evening for private events, not to mention the thousands of attendees and volunteers filling up tables all over the city.  But our favorite event of the week was Philly Feast Food Truck Festival, co-sponsored by Plate of the Union and The Food Trust.  Dozens of local food trucks lined the streets surrounding 3rd and Arch, along with live entertainment and vendors selling locally made goods. 

While we weren’t at all surprised to see The Food Trust sponsor such an event, we had never heard of Plate of The Union and were thrilled to hear about their mission.  Philadelphia has long been home to several food advocacy organizations - it’s fantastic to see the issue gain national traction.
