Lola Stephens-Bell provides free meals to residents suffering from food insecurity. Despite an abundance of available food, nearly 50 million Americans have faced food insecurity at some point in their lives. For many of these families, food banks are the only source of relief from constant hunger.
Lola Stephens-Bell devised a solution to combat food insecurity through the use of a roving community kitchen. Her charitable food truck is called 'Nubian Queen Lola's Cajun Soul Food Kitchen' and operates throughout the city of Austin, Texas. The truck provides delicious comfort food to hungry city residents suffering from food insecurity. Unlike food banks and soup kitchens, Lola's mobile kitchen provides a unique way to bring food to those in need.
The charitable food truck provides an innovative solution for a growing social issue by reaching a portion of the population that is unable to access other services.
