BOYTON BEACH, FL – For anyone who stops at Hurricane Alley’s Chowder Truck-n-Snack Shack food truck and sees Garbage Fries on the menu, you’ll know where that dish came from after reading this post.

Kim Kelly, owner of Boynton Beach’s Hurricane Alley, opened the food truck and it was recently covered in the media after she was asking for permission to park the truck on Community Redevelopment Agency-owned land.

Commissioner David Merker was interviewed and is quoted as saying “They might as well be garbage trucks.”

Kelly didn’t like that. Really, what food truck owner would? So she posted her feelings on social media and received a lot of support, and people came to her defense.

She also made her thoughts clear at this week’s City Commission meeting. Kelly said comments like that degrade the city. She stood up for food trucks and said they bring jobs and tax revenue to the area.

“The food truck revolution is coming with or without you,” she said to Merker.

And then she said she is adding a dish called Garbage Fries, “and I want to thank you for the inspiration.”
