ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Churches on the Streets made news late last year when the Health Department shut them down for serving hot meals.
Now, the organization has a way to get around those rules—a food truck for the homeless.
“We had a gentleman who said, ‘Hey, I want to buy you a food truck,'” co-founder Angela Valdes says. “So, we’ve been working fervently to get that up to par. We got it painted with our lettering on so we’re now ready to roll on the streets and keep serving people.”
Volunteers will take the truck out every Monday night. The meet at 6:00 p.m. at 1600 North First Street, at Cotton Belt Rail Depot.
