Food trucks are becoming a big deal in Fort Collins right now.  So how cool is it that a charity organization is using this new trend to help people?

The Fort Collins branch of the Salvation Army is now running a food truck at Legacy Park, 300 Woodlawn Drive, that offers free lunches on Thursdays, starting at noon.

The truck is usually meant for emergency services in disaster situations; but the Salvation Army is happy to use it to offer other kinds of help in the meantime, according to the Coloradoan.

“A lot of people are having a hard time,” (cadet Shawn Keoho) said. “We just want to help them get back on their feet. We got this truck for disasters, but it’s a great way to feed the community. Come see us. We want to see how your spirit is doing and it’s completely free. You never say no to free stuff.”
