Our food trucks are the ultimate small business start-ups, and one of them, paleo-based Beast Food Truck is being recognized nationally by the Small Business Revolution campaign. They've produced a short video detailing the passionate work of owner Gwen Jones (famous for her "LARD LOVE" knuckle tats), along with some shout-outs to local favorites Freckle Face Farm and Dunbar Community Garden. We love local, and we love when our local folks get recognized for their work in growing our excellent Arkansas foodways.

Take a look at the video below, and head out April 30 to Dunbar Community Gardens (1800 South Chester Street), where the folks from Beast Food Truck will be showing the video on a big screen.
