SAN ANTONIO -- Food trucks are all the rage in the culinary world but there's one special non-profit truck that feeds the homeless healthy meals for free.
Joan Cheever operates The Chow Train with her husband and neighbor and on Tuesdays, they cook up big meals for dozens of people around town.
"I don't think people can live on bologna sandwiches and just because you're poor, I don't think you should have to live off bologna sandwiches. I think we can do better," Cheever said.
Cheever receives fresh produce donated from local farmers markets and she makes sure everyone gets their veggies.
"Everyone knows the rules on the street are you're not going to get the main course unless you eat the soup. A hearty, vegetable soup or salad," she explained.
They take their food to different spots around town where the homeless may gather. Recently, they drove to Louisiana, with a truck stocked full of fresh produce to feed people affected by Hurricane Isaac.
Cheever has plans to expand Chow Train in the future. If you'd like to find out more information or make a donation, click here
