Lunch Information:

New This Year! Instead of food trucks, a delicious BBQ lunch will be available to all players, vendors, and volunteers. As in previous years, Bridges is contributing $5 toward each player’s lunch, so your cost for lunch will be just $5 per person! Menu:

Choose One: Pulled Pork Sandwich or Pulled Chicken Sandwich
Choose Two: BBQ Pit Beans, Creamy Coleslaw, Redskin Potato Salad, Quinoa & Black Beans (Vegetarians may take all four; all sides are vegetarian.)

Lunch provided by Bootheel Catering
Bottled water provided by American Muslim and Arabic Cultural Association@USPTO
Honest Sport Organic Sports Drink provided by Honest Tea

We encourage teams and individuals to pre-pay for lunches. Player lunches are $5 each. Please pay through the “Donate Now” page of the Bridges to Independence website: https://bridges2.org/donate-now/. Paying for multiple people? Please list all names in the “Designation/Note” section. Paying for an entire team’s lunches? Please list the team name only.

The BBQ lunch will be available to players, vendors and volunteers. We encourage spectators to pack a picnic or take advantage of the many nearby eateries. However, we will sell any extra BBQ lunches at a cost of $10 at 1:00 pm.

In addition to the BBQ lunch, the South Block Juice Co. truck will be onsite, selling juice, smoothies, and acai bowls.
