Food truck serves food to homeless outside of Cornerstone Rescue Mission

RAPID CITY, S.D. (KOTA TV) - Gathering over food is a part of the holidays, but not everyone can afford a nice meal and one food truck wanted to help.

Gramma’s Delicacies, a Cajun Cuisine food truck, handed out food to the homeless behind Cornerstone Rescue Mission on Monday afternoon. They served options of chicken and gumbo, with rice, beans, salad and lemon cake. The Mission estimated they served around 180 people.

"It's free, they can order what they want, and we aren't used to this,” said Deb Berg, the Volunteer Coordinator for the Cornerstone Rescue Mission. “We have never had a food truck at the Mission before, so it's a nice treat."

The owners of the food truck had the idea and just wanted to give back.

"Food brings people together and I like the smile on people's face,” said Angelique Mills, Co-Owner of Gramma’s Delicacies, with her husband Joe. “They are having something different, and we have been blessed and we need to give back."
