BUFFALO, N.Y. — A new food truck has hit the streets of the Queen City with a special mission. The Bread of Heaven food truck aims to feed the hungry for free.

Its first-ever stop was outside the Martha Mitchell Center in the Langfield Housing Development Monday afternoon. True Bethel Baptist Church on East Ferry Street purchased and custom-built the truck.

“What is happening now is word of mouth,” said True Bethel Baptist Church Pastor Darius Pridgen. “We wanted the community to be involved, the community to advertise, the community to bring people out. So by doing that we are able to connect with people who we might not have had the chance to connect with if we were just in church.”

The truck will make the rounds three days a week during the summer and will use social media to promote where it can be found.
