Knowing that 13% of our Birmingham community is uninsured and underserved, Hamrick decided to take a stand. She is going to make a difference.

Fact #1: It exists! The Okra Festival is held annually, the last weekend in August, in Burkville, Lowndes County, AL about 20 miles west of Montgomery. When I heard about it, I had to go, as fresh okra is one of my favorite things and the festival rated as one of the top things to do in August in Alabama, other than drink iced tea and sit under a fan.

This place is a staple in late night eats in Birmingham. Open until 3am on weekdays and 5am on weekends, this is the place you go for a great, hot meal after a very long night.
