Food shortage expected at art stroll

Staff writer

Time is running short, but Jan Davis still is looking for ways to feed attendees at the annual art stroll.

“I’m willing to take anyone who’s interested in helping out,” the event organizer said. “The restaurants will be open, but they often run out of food. We’re expecting a shortage because of the Big Scoop not being open. If anyone wants to do a fundraiser, like a bake sale or an eat-on-the-go booth, I’d be more than willing to hear from them.”

Davis has been involved in organizing the event for the past several years. She said, while this year presents a new challenge, there is usually a food-related concern at the event.

“There are just so many people that everybody runs out of food,” she said.

In the past month, Davis has been doing everything in her power to scrounge up people who are willing to provide for the swarm of people who are expected to hit Marion on June 2.

She said the only organization she was able to enlist was the American Legion, who will be hosting a salad and sandwich luncheon. While she is grateful for the support, Davis said she is still concerned about the lack of options for those in attendance.
