Sacramento's Poor Get A Hot Lunch From Food Trucks


This afternoon seven local food trucks opened their windows and took orders from about 900 hungry poor, disabled and homeless Sacramentans today.

Asha Tinsley brought her children for lunch. She says her family has fallen on hard times.  

"I'm just thankful for the opportunity to come out and commune with other people and have a good meal," Tinsley said. "I feel very blessed."

Joan Burke with Loaves and Fishes says this is the second year for the event.  

"People find out that the community cares about them and it's a welcome treat," Burke explains.  "Many of our guests have very difficult lives and this is a real upper for them."  

Councilman Darrel Fong and the food truck group Sacto MoFo organized the event.
