NASHVILLE (BP) – Messengers and guests at the 2021 SBC Annual Meeting won’t have to go far for a meal because local food trucks will be available along the side of the Music City Center beginning on Monday.
Jeff Pearson, the SBC Executive Committee’s chief financial officer, said he knew an increased number of nearby food options would be necessary as the number of registered SBC messengers continued to climb.
Some 16,000 are expected to be in Nashville for the two-day annual meeting that begins Tuesday and concludes Wednesday.
“The city of Nashville and has been so helpful and accommodating for us to be able to have our annual meeting here,” Pearson said. “We are also specifically grateful to the Music City Center for allowing us to provide food trucks to our people here so we can conduct our business of the annual meeting in a more efficient manner.”
The trucks will be located on the sidewalk next to the Music City Center along Rep. John Lewis Way S. and will be open from 11 a.m. through 2:30 p.m. Monday through Wednesday. Nearby is the Marty Dickens Terrace, where tables and chairs will be available.
“We are glad to play a part in opening the city of Nashville up again,” Pearson said, “both to the residents of Nashville and to those visiting the city for the meeting.”
