Food trucks are everywhere in D.C. these days, but one special truck drew quite a crowd Friday. It was serving up a gourmet lunch — for free.

The Macy’s “Chefs A-Go-Go” truck pulled into Eastern Market in southeast Washington just in time for the lunch crowd today.

Celebrity chef Marcus Samuelsson dished out one of his signature dishes: a blackened catfish sandwich with fried capers and sweet potato fries.

The meal was free, but guests were encouraged to make a donation to Feeding America. For every dollar donated, Feeding America is able to provide seven meals to those in need.
