Colorado food truck program focuses on helping the homeless

Thank you to the Food Truck Operator for this great article.

Two Colorado Springs residents have created a food truck program that helps the needy.
The program, Food Trucks Against Homelessness, is about feeding the hungry with food trucks providing the meals, according to a Gazette Cheyenne Edition report.

Program founders Marcy Langlois and Tracey Porter created a Facebook group, Food Trucks Against Homelessness, and there’s been strong community support in response.

“Food truck sponsors donate their time, their supplies and their delicious food to our neighbors,” Porter said on Facebook. In return, they receive a tax benefit (donation letter).

The trucks offer food from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. every Monday in the Westside CARES parking lot at 2808 W. Colorado Ave. The program is also seeking essential item donations for those in need as well as monetary donations.

To date, the food truck program has provided more than 3,050 meals, according to the news report.
