Fill stockings to fill bellies

Pho and falafel make for unwieldy stocking stuffers. Luckily, Slow Food Asheville has created a food truck coupon book that also raises money for a great cause. Each book contains $30 in discounts at Gypsy Queen Cuisine, Tin Can Pizzeria, Our Taco Truck, Pho Ya Belly, The Lowdown, The Venezuelan Food Truck, Ursa Minor Coffee and Flying Falafel Brothers. The cost is $15, so consider it a good investment. What else doubles your money these days?

The proceeds benefit Slow Food's projects, such as conference visits, cooking classes and oral history initiatives. Right now, Slow Food is working on providing healthy monthly dinners for young parents in the Our Circle Program, sponsored by Asheville Buncombe Community Christian Ministry. They're looking for volunteers to help prepare the meals. To buy a coupon book or volunteer, send an email to The books also can be purchased online at
