Let’s Eat Out! (LEO) began in August 2012 as Let’s Eat Out, Atwood! with 5 carts vending 1 night per week in the Atwood neighborhood. Born out of the need to find new vending locations in order to survive financially during the harsh winter, Christine Ameigh, owner of Slide Food Cart & Catering partnered with Warren Hansen, Street Vending Coordinator at the City of Madison, to bring food carts beyond the traditional downtown locations. Reception was warm and 2013 saw the addition of new carts and new locations. By 2014 over 15 carts were participating at 8 different locations. Founder and Executive Director Christine Ameigh was awarded the "Market Spark" Isthmus Independent Business Award in 2014 for her innovative food cart location model. In 2016 we are hosting 16 weekly food cart dinners with over 20 participating carts.
