City Heights Street Food Festival

From the event description:

Street food does far more than fill bellies. Street food gets people outside, into the community, together. Every year, our communities become more and more separate. It’s estimated the average American eats one in every five meals in her car, and the majority of American families report eating a single meal together less than five days a week. The effects of this separation are subtle but significant. Our first annual Street Food Fest is designed to get people together around tables and food stalls to celebrate another year of community building.

When: Thursday, Sept. 12, 5-9 p.m.
Where: [email protected], 4350 El Cajon Blvd.
Admission: $8
